As a blizzard blankets the northeast, burying residents and shutting down airports, the Farrah family eagerly awaits the arrival of Eva, a cousin visiting from Lebanon after a long absence. Over the course of several days, while Eva is stranded in New York City, Chehade's nuanced story unfolds in the reminiscences and anxieties of each family member.
