Synopsis

‘The Great Family’ follows the story of Marlene, a 43-year-old woman who was adopted from Lebanon by a French family in 1976 when she was four years old. As she investigates the traces of her identity, she discovers she is from the Tal Al Zaatar Palestinian refugee camp, which fell during the Lebanese Civil War. The camp is only kept alive through the testimonies of its survivors, who are scattered in Lebanon, Jordan, Germany, Norway and Sweden, and, even 40 years later, are unable to ingest the ugliness of what they lived on 12 August, 1976. As the film progresses, solid ties are built among Marlene and the survivors of Tal Al Zaatar, and they all become one great family.
