Time has no beginning and no end, if it spins in a circle. Each point can be a start or a ﬁnish, or simply an abstract point. We can chose to begin and end, or we can chose to be. A family of four generations in their house in the Lebanese mountains. A dog. What does it mean to live in war that constantly changes features and never ends? What does it mean to care for a family in such a situation? Which values do you teach your children? What is society in a civil war? Or the nation? Can one heal before peace? Using the example of his biography - from the ﬁrst year of the civil war in 1975 till the early weeks of the Islamic State in summer 2014 - Bassem Fayad lovingly and courageously examines how life moves on while war rotates in and around it.
