2022/ Lebanon - Romania74 min/ Documentary, Drama
Saleh is a man who lives in an old house in the mountains near the Lebanese city of Byblos. Saleh does not belong to a family or a religious sect, in a society where such criteria define a human being. Worse, he lacks nationality and a passport, he even lacks the right to live his life as an ordinary citizen since he is labeled as a ’lakit’ of unknown ancestry.
