Set in Lebanon and Jordan, A MAN OF HONOR is the story of passion, betrayal and the many facets of human nature. Brahim has a chance encounter with a mysterious woman he knew 20 years ago. Because of her, he committed a murder and now has to return home to face his tumultuous past.

Brahim sells cars in his « Brahim Auto Park » located in Lebanon. Apart from his secretary and his clients, he is in contact with nobody. He lives a lonely life. Brahim has a chance encounter with Leila. Because of her, he committed a murder 20 years ago in Jordan. He was forced to play dead and flee incognito to Lebanon, leaving behind his wife and son who think he « died a hero ». His encounter with Leila makes him go back to Jordan and face his past and his people.
A MAN OF HONOR recounts the journey of a man struggling against his ossified tribal community. Where group cohesion comes first, how is it possible to defend individual rights, especially when that individual is a woman? Forced to deal with reality and myths, with shame, revenge and honor crimes, how far will Brahim go in order to regain his dignity?
