Lina is a Lebanese Student that just arrived to Paris to continue her studies in a French University in 1993, only to find that the Chaos that was home was no different than what she will witness in the French capital. But Paris will offer her the opportunity to find herself and acquire a new self confidence that she didn't know she had in herself.
We meet the beautiful Lina, a smart, strong, and tough Libanese 19-year-old girl played by a terrific and impressive actress Manal Issa in her first role play, on her worthwhile journey in Paris during the 90's. She is stunning, and radiates more than just physical beauty. There's strength and spirit evident each time the camera lights on her face. All the supporting characters are stellar also. From the passionate professors Mrs. Gagnebin and Mr. Lemernier (veteran actors Dominique Blanc and Alain Libolt) to her different lovers played by Paul Hamy, Damien Chapelle and Vincent Lacoste. This ambitions coming of age story is a remarkable achievement and a wholly thought provoking and compelling film. A film that strikes you right in the heart.
