As war rages throughout most of Lebanon, the women in a remote village band together to keep their husbands, fathers, brothers and sons from fighting by first eliminating radio contact with the outside world and then sabotaging the village's ability to get television reception. The women try everything to prevent violence from ruining the once-peaceful atmosphere of their town, including hiring an entertainment troupe of dancers and giving male family members baked goods laced with drugs. When one of the young boys making errands outside the village is killed, the women are more determined than ever to maintain a peaceful atmosphere for his funeral.
