Abou Milad is an old barber who's lost his saloon during the Lebanese civil war. Nowadays he makes a living as an itinerant barber in the local cafés in Beirut. One day, Mr. Raymond, an old and rich widower cloistered for years in his huge house, calls Abou Milad for his services. Things go haywire then.
How a man lives between what is true and what is his imagination makes for the story-line of Beyroth aprés-rasage. The film plays on two levels of time - the past and the present - and sensitively portrays the lives of the war-struck Lebanese.
After-shave Beyroth Aprés-Rasage is directed by Hanny Tamba.
