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, packs an enthralling and emotional wallop.
