A film by Hany Tamba

In the 1970's, Bruno Caprice was a one-hit wonder with his first and only single, "Quand tu t'en vas."

An unexpected phone call changes his life: a rich Lebanese businessman wants him to come sing in Beirut, for his wife's birthday. There he discovers that his song has not been forgotten.
