When the Voices Fade is a portrait of the Lebanese-Israeli conflict seen through the eyes of a Lebanese-American dance instructor, Nadia, and an Israeli Defense Forces pilot, Amir. When the 2006 war breaks out, Amir is called back to duty, forcing him to evaluate his moral objections to serving again. After Nadia and Amir coincidently meet at a coffee shop, Amir's decision to return to Israel becomes more complicated. Amir's best friend, Eli, returns to Israel to pledge his service to the army. Nadia's sister refuses to leave her home in Beirut, the seemingly 'safe-haven' of Lebanon, increasing her mother's, Leila, emotional angst. Despite the powerful voices who are in opposition to Nadia's and Amir's respective sides, they are both able to reconcile their differences, until Beirut is bombed.
