An 11-year-old East Beirut schoolboy who has finally decided to express his love for a female classmate is suddenly upstaged by Israel’s invasion of Lebanon. Taking place all in one day, this acclaimed, semi-autobiographical, emotionally satisfying coming-of-age film offers a unique perspective on a nation’s trauma.
