This film has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. In today's Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds a Lebanese Christian and a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another.

“Director Ziad Doueiri's Best Foreign-Language Film Oscar nominee from Lebanon is a crackling legal thriller that boils down centuries of Middle Eastern conflict into one reckless insult - and lets the sparks fly.” -Rolling Stone
