Description

A poor family lives in a village in the Lebanese mountains. One day, the father abandons them and leaves for Brazil, considered an Eldorado by his compatriots. Twenty years pass. The mother raises her children with great difficulty. The elder now has a family and the younger is getting ready to emigrate to Brazil. One day a ragged old man arrives to the village. No one recognizes him, not even his son, whom he gives blood to in order to save his life. This classic film tackles themes and issues that feel relevant even for today’s numerous migrations, because it considers the agony of residing in a country without a future and the cruelty of an exile that fails to provide a better life.
