In the early 60s, during the cold war and the apex of Pan Arabism, a group of utopian students and researchers enter the race to space and create the Lebanese Rocket Society. Sometimes, dreams can overtake a tormented history. Documents and archives, as well as reconstitutions and art installations, attempt to question this story and the ideas of reenactment and reconstitution and are restaged in the present time.
