Aida left Yafa in 1948 to settle in Beirut, then in Montreal. Suffering from advanced Alzheimer’s, she lost her memory along with her sense of identity, except for her memories of Yafa. When she passed away, her daughter decided to “return” her to Yafa. With the help of a set of willing strangers, Aida makes it back to rest where she belongs.
