Diyaa Yamout, a young Lebanese leftist activist, takes his own life and, in a farewell letter, declares that his reasons are personal and have nothing to do with politics. But his suicide mobilises a society desperately in search of meaning: institutions (official and unofficial, religious and secular, left-wing and right-wing) and individuals (young and old) find their own reasons. Does the young man’s death belong to the public or only to him and his relatives? Was he driven by the hope of an uprising? In their semi-documentary work, Rabih Mroué and Lina Majdalanie astutely reconstruct the final moments of Yamout's life, at the same time passionately unmasking the problems of a country in which last year’s Arab revolutions have failed to strike a spark.
