The free-spirited Badri family escapes the toxic pollution and social unrest of Beirut by seeking refuge in a utopic mountain home they’ve devoted years to building for themselves. Unexpectedly, the government begins construction on a garbage landfill right outside their fence, bringing the trash and corruption of a whole country to their doorstep. As the landfill rises, so do family tensions, and the Badris are left with a choice: stay off the grid and stay true to their ideals, or leave their idyllic home and face the reality they fled. 

Reviews

"A heartfelt charmer."

"A terrific feature debut… works both as a compelling domestic drama and an elegant political allegory."

“Something uniquely special and a perfect, alluring example of all that is wrong with the world we’re living in.”

“When it comes to individual people and their hopes, fears and desires, Akl has a talent for both the surreal flourish and the grounded insight.”
