Grand Prize winner at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, critics worldwide included this feature high on their top-ten lists for the year. Zain is a streetwise kid trying to get by while also helping a refugee and her toddler survive a marginal existence. Finding himself caught up in the legal system, Zain decides to sue his parents for neglect, resulting in a story that not only reveals the troubling underbelly of modern global culture but also provides a life-affirming space for hope. The filmmaker’s unusual approach has garnered much attention, as she shot the film using non-professional actors whose characters’ lives parallel their own, then adapted the film around the actors’ instincts for the story.
In Arabic with English subtitles. Running time 101 min. 

The sorrow inherent in this tale would be unbearable without the film’s flashes of humor and performances by a cast of nonprofessionals that are moving beyond measure.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
