After running away from his neglectful parents, a streetwise 12-year-old Lebanese boy named Zain sues his parents for bringing him into the world.
The circumstances that have brought him to this point take us on a journey through his poverty-stricken upbringing in Beirut where he lives with his family, forced to live by his wits in order to survive the dangers of the city streets.
Capernaum is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit, employing a cast of non-professional actors and filmed on the streets of the Lebanese capital, this is a compassionate and unforgettable film.
Capernaum is both BAFTA and Oscar nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
