In 1975, Rich, an American law student visiting his family in Beirut, falls in love with Muna, the beautiful and intensely militant Palestinian activist whose brother leads the Rejection Front. Pursuing Muna, Rich becomes entangled in her commitment to terrorism. His father, a long-time resident of Beirut and specialist in Arab affairs, also becomes embroiled in the tragic efforts of Palestinian resistance. As civil war tears open the festering wounds of Lebanon, we experience the authentic scene of Beirut destroying itself, pitting Moslems and Palestinians against Christian forces. The war's bombs, battles and brutality are seen through the expatriate eyes of Rich's American family. Political intrigues envelop Rich and Muna. Their secret meetings are exposed, and they stand to be separated. Their hopes and those of the many victims of the war's turmoil and violence might end up buried in Beirut.
