Meedo Taha / Feature Narrative / Lebanon, France, Qatar / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Drama, Politics, Social Issues, Adaptation, Mystery, Immigration, Women Issues


Based on Meedo’s novel of the same title. A bus carrying immigrant farmers is gunned down just outside a prosperous wine-producing town in the mountains of Lebanon. The authorities are quick to label the murder politically motivated. They bring in Nancy, a young police cadet born in this town, to console her townspeople. However, Nancy refuses to play into the narrative and instead embarks on her own secret investigation. Meanwhile, a local college professor behaves erratically, covers up evidence, and tells misleading stories about what happened. As he grows into her prime suspect and as their lives intertwine, Nancy’s quest for the truth threatens to destroy the delicate balance of their community.
