Storyline

Rabih, a young blind man, lives in a small village in Lebanon. He sings in a choir and edits Braille documents for an income. His life unravels when he tries to apply for a passport and discovers that his identification card, which he has carried his entire life, is a forgery. Traveling across rural Lebanon in search of a record of his own birth, he meets people on the far fringes of society who tell their own stories, open further questions and give Rabih minor clues about his true identity. Descending into a void at the heart of his existence, Rabih encounters a nation incapable of telling his or its own narrative. Written by Anonymous

Lebanese road movie mystery is intriguing but underdeveloped
30 September 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

Lebanese singer and musician Barakat Jabbour takes us on a journey with his character which is interesting and distinctive and intriguing. It's a mystery about a young man who is blind and discovers his family is not his real family. The story had me gripped the whole way right up to the non-twist ending. Rabih settles his account with his talents which is music through which he delivers a dirge on his plight. Music is his redemption and revelation but while it is beautifully delivered in the final musical performance with haunting harmonies, I felt the intriguing plot needed at least the tiniest of payoffs for the gripped viewer.
