A retired Interior Security Forces general of 80 years and a former army doctor of 84 go to the same Beirut coffee shop every day, to sip their espresso, watch the world go by and do crossword puzzles, in an effort to stave off dementia. A charming film that does not gloss over contemporary turmoil but allows its venerable protagonists to fight against losing their minds.
