After being jailed for committing a violent crime, Zain, a mistreated 12-year-old boy, sues his parents for giving him life. Zain’s large family live hand-to-mouth in a squalid apartment in Lebanon. When Zain’s 11-year-old sister is sold into marriage, he flees the family home in search of a better life. He’s taken in and lovingly cared for by an illegal Ethiopian worker, Rahil, who lives in a shanty house with her baby. But when Rahil disappears, Zain is suddenly left to fend for himself and the baby, resorting to increasingly desperate measures to survive. Director Nadine Labaki (Where Do We Go Now?) cast non-professional actors from backgrounds similar to their characters, resulting in authentic and extraordinary performances that will stay with you for a very long time… Starring Zain Al Rafeea, Yordanos Shiferaw & Boluwatife Treasure Bankole. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film & Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
