Lili and Naji, two teenagers who are separated by everything, meet in a place on the edge of the world.
She was born on French soil, he on a war-torn land. They look at each other, they search for each other, they calculate each other.
In the suspended time of the meeting, Naji’s memory resurfaces in fragments, shaking Lili’s vision of the world, awakening her to the reality of the war, which was previously remote.
Through the confrontation of the two teenagers, Waynak addresses the conflicts that shake the world, and also questions our Western view.
If Waynak evokes the absurdity of the world as seen by young people, it also speaks of the indestructible bonds that are forged when we recognize ourselves in the Other.
