For the past five decades, Lebanon, once the jewel of the Middle East, has been engulfed by strife, chaos and bloodshed. In his incisive documentary, Israeli director Duki Dror compares this small nation to an active volcano that explodes periodically, destabilizing everything in its path. Using graphic file footage and informative interviews with Lebanese, Palestinians, Israelis and Americans, Dror draws a vivid portrait of a country in crisis. Caught up in the chaos are the Lebanese civilians. Consisting of different sects, religions, and ethnicities, the Lebanese people are now writing their own history, in a string of political assassinations, massacres, and betrayals.
