During the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, 11-year-old Wissam (Mohamad Dalli) attempts to find the courage to tell Joanna, a girl in his class, that he has a crush on her. Meanwhile the schoolteacher Yasmine (Nadine Labaki) is trying to mask her fears and ever-growing apprehensions as the rumbling of war planes makes it impossible to protect the kids from the worsening situation.
Director Oualid Mouaness, previously known for his music videos for David Bowie and Justin Timberlake, among others, delivers his first full-length movie. A bloodcurdling story that serves as an unforeseen mirror for current events after an explosion ruined big parts of Beirut at the start of August.
