Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Capernaum ("Chaos"), by Nadine Labaki is about the journey of a clever, gutsy 12-year-old boy Zain, who survives the dangers of the city streets by his wits. He flees his parents and to assert his rights, takes them to court suing them for the "crime" of giving him life.
