Synopsis

Winner of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival Grand Jury Prize, Director Nadine Labaki’s (Where Do We Go Now?) critically acclaimed Capharnaum sees non-professional actors from displaced backgrounds playing out the narrative with poignantly moving authenticity.
After being jailed for committing a violent crime, Zain, a mistreated 12-year-old boy, sues his parents for giving him life. Zain’s large family live hand to mouth in a squalid apartment in Lebanon. The kids work instead of going to school. When Zain’s 11 year old sister is sold into marriage, he flees the family home in search of a better life. He is taken in and lovingly cared for by an illegal Ethiopian worker, Rahil, who lives in a shanty house with her baby. But when Rahil disappears, Zain is suddenly left to fend for himself and her baby, resorting to increasingly desperate measures to survive.
