SYNOPSIS
Al Shambouk is one of the highest mountainous areas in Lebanon. Located in the Akkar heights, it is only a few kilometres away from Syria. It is the homeland of Haykal, a 60-year-old Christian farmer. In this spot, where borders intersect, along with different religious factions and social classes, Haykal decided to settle down and build a farm and a restaurant. Haykal deals with neighbouring quarries and the agricultural stagnation, in addition to the repercussions of the Syrian crisis on the political and economic situation.
