In the fifties, young Alice leaves her natal Swiss mountains for the sunny and vibrant shores of Beirut.

She falls madly in love with Joseph, a quirky astrophysicist intent on sending the first Lebanese national into space.

Alice quickly fits in among his relatives, but after years of bliss, the civil war threatens their Garden of Eden.
