Growing up in the slums of Beirut, bold 12-year-old Zain runs away after his parents sell his younger sister into marriage. Despite his young age and grim circumstances, the boy endures life on Lebanon’s chaotic streets with great resourcefulness and resilience. He crosses paths with Rahil, an illegal Ethiopian worker who lives with her toddler in precarious conditions, and temporarily becomes the baby’s caretaker when Rahil is taken away by the authorities. Being sentenced to 5 years in jail for a crime he previously committed, Zain decides to sue his parents for giving him life without being able to care for him. ‘Capernaum’ is a visually-striking social critique as well as an emotional defence of childhood innocence, tackling issues as important and topical as child trafficking and child abuse in poverty-stricken communities.
