Winner of the Cinema in Motion Award at last year's San Sebastian Festival. Through the stories of Assaad Shaftari, an ex high rank leader in a Christian militia, responsible for many killings during the Lebanese Civil War, and Maryam Saiidi, a mother of a kidnapped young fighter, this documentary by Eliane Raheb looks closely at war wounds and asks if redemption and forgiveness are possible.
