A sensitive, insightful coming-of-age tale set at an idyllic school in Lebanon’s mountains on the eve of a looming invasion. The film unfolds over a single day in 1982 and follows an 11-year-old boy’s relentless quest to profess his love to a girl in his class. As the invasion encroaches on Beirut, it upends the day, threatening the entire country and its cohesion. Within the microcosm of the school, the film portrays a society torn between its desire for love and peace and the ideological schisms unraveling its seams. Filmmaker Oualid Mouaness was inspired by his childhood memories during the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. (100 minutes)
