Spring Grant 2011 - Development Stage

Ahmad Ghossein / Feature Narrative / Lebanon, Qatar / 90 min / Colour / Original Language: Arabic / Interests: Drama, War, Dark Comedy, Based on a True Story


In a small village in the south of Lebanon, during the last days of the July War, five people try to escape the bombing: a young woman with her older husband; two old men; and Marwan, a young man recently arrived from Beirut who is looking for his father. They decide to hide in the basement of a house that has not yet been destroyed but after they do, Israeli soldiers enter the first floor. They are trapped in their location and by their own fears, and the situation soon spirals out of control.
