In a small neighbourhood of a traditional Lebanese coastal town, Leba (Georges Khabbaz), a music instructor, marries his childhood sweetheart Lara. To the dismay of his family, neighbours and friends, his firstborn and second born are baby girls. Then Lara is pregnant for the third time, and yes, it’s a BOY! However, medical tests show that the boy will have special needs. Will Leba and Lara keep the baby? Will little Ghadi become a burden on the family, or will he be its pride and joy? Expect strange phenomena to affect the behaviour and beliefs of the people in the coastal town.

This screening has been organised in collaboration with Sharjah City for Humanitarian Services.
