their houses and try to reach the border with Palestine/Israel

Christian who was born and raised in Lebanon all her
life and who lived the Lebanese war, rediscover her
childhood and begin questioning her relationship and
position with the Arab world, and within the different
factions (religious and political) in Lebanon.
