Zain (Zain Al Rafeea) is a young boy living with his family in an impoverished Beirut neighbourhood. Wise and street-smart beyond his years, Zain’s resentment towards his parents builds and, following a series of tragic events, he finds himself compelled to sue them for bringing children into such a world. 

Winner of the Jury Award at Cannes Film Festival 2018, director Nadine Labaki crafts a viscerally powerful and thought-provoking tale of hope, charting the journey of children on the edges of society who find hope in spite of the challenges of their everyday lives.
