RFS's Season continues with Nadine Labaki's endearing and heart-wrenching drama. A young Lebanese boy runs away from his negligent parents and is befriended by an Ethiopian immigrant; he then, in turn, looks after her infant. Ultimately imprisoned for a violent crime, he sues his parents for giving birth to him and seeks justice in a courtroom.

Winner of 33 awards worldwide and shortlisted for the 2019 Foreign Language Oscar, Golden Globe and BAFTA awards.
