In April 1975, civil war broke out. The capital of Lebanon, Beirut, is divided into two, East Beirut for Christians and West Beirut (West Beirut in English, hence the title) for Muslims. Tarek, a young Muslim, wants to make a film with his Super 8 and his friend Omar. At the beginning of the war, the school is closed. Her mother wants to flee the city, but his father refuses. Tarek spends his time with his girlfriend May. By accident, Tarek is found in the legendary Oum Walid, who runs a brothel.
