Under the Bombs

2007 NR

When divorced Shiite mother Zeina (Nada Abou Farhat) takes a risky journey to war-torn Lebanon to find her missing 6-year-old son, her only help comes in the form of Tony (Georges Khabbaz), a Christian cabbie who agrees to escort her on the dangerous trip. The harrowing expedition slowly brings the odd couple together in this romantic drama, which screened at the Sundance Film Festival and Venice Film Festival.
