Synopsis

New Yorker Gaby Bustros travels to war-torn Beirut to reunite with her upper-class Lebanese family, composed of a widowed mother, a younger brother and two sisters. Filmmaker Jennifer Fox traces middle child Gaby's journey of self-discovery back to her birthplace -- currently in the throes of a bloody civil war -- and presents an apparent disconnect between the relative affluence of the Bustros family and the political realities of wartime Lebanon.
