Event Information

Zain, a boy of around 12 stands up in court and declares that he wishes to sue his parents. What could have led him to this point? Flashing back, we learn that his family has become overwhelmed – too many kids, not enough love – and that Zain has been living on the streets, eking out a life not just for him but for another young soul as well. 

This rousing, realist Beirut-set street epic, the winner of the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and 2019 Oscar nominee, packs an enthralling and emotional punch, and was made with a cast of non-professionals, playing characters whose lives closely parallel their own.
