Set in Lebanon under the Ottoman Empire, Kamila, a widowed mother, works as the housekeeper for Mustafa, a foreign poet, painter and political activist being held under house arrest. Mustafa is guarded by the soldier Halim, who secretly pines for Kamila. Kamila’s young daughter, Almitra, has stopped talking due to her father’s death, and has become a troublemaker who frequently steals from local merchants. Almitra has seagulls for her only friends; she even seems able to talk to them by making birdlike noises.

When Halim’s pompous Sergeant arrives to tell Mustafa that he is now free, he must board a ship to his home country by day’s end. The Sergeant escorts Mustafa to the ship, and Mustafa spends the time conversing with Kamila, Almitra and Halim, as well as with the townspeople, who regard him a hero. Mustafa’s conversations, ranging in topics from freedom, parenthood and marriage, to working, eating, love, and good and evil are animated by the film’s various directors in their own unique styles. Once they reach the ship, the army imprisons Mustafa in a fortress instead of allowing him to board.
