This powerful, intimate story from Lebanon floored audiences at Cannes and the Toronto International Film Festival and is Academy Award-nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. After running away from a life of squalor and his negligent parents, committing a violent crime, and being sentenced to five years in jail, a gutsy, streetwise 12-year-old boy sues his parents “for giving me life.”
