When Ossyanes father gives him that name it represents the protest of an aristocratic but liberal man against a history of sectarianism and violence that has characterised the world he inherited from his Ottoman ancestors. But his brilliant, dutiful son develops into a peaceable young man who takes himself to Montpellier to study, away from the burden of his fathers revolutionary ambitions. War breaks out in Europe, and Ossyane is drawn into the Resistance, where he meets Clara. He returns to Beirut, a rebel heros welcome after all, and to joyful marriage with Clara. The Jewish-Muslim couple move to Haifa, but if one war has made a hero out of Ossyane, another, much closer to home, is destined to separate him from the people and the world that he loves.
