The first thing Anthony Chidiac says about himself is that life scares him, and he is paralyzed by fear.


He lives with his mother, a French teacher, in Beirut, and rarely leaves the house. Being gay in Lebanon, his home is a refuge, but in some respects also a prison. In carefully composed shots of his immediate surroundings, reflections on moments in his life, conversations with the Syrian builders who are renovating his house, and a trip with his father to Argentina, Chidiac constructs an intriguing self-portrait.
