In Nadine Labaki’s powerful drama, a Beirut child sues his parents for giving birth to him – before ending up on the street caring for a stranger’s baby. A heart wrenching movie which has won numerous awards and was also Oscar nominated. The title means “Chaos” and also alludes to the town on the Sea of Galilee where Jesus was said to have taught in the synagogue and healed the sick.
