Capernaum means chaos. A multi award winner, here is a film hailed as a 'stunning piece of cinema'.  Performed by a young Syrian refugee it tells the story of 12 year old Zain attempting to survive on the streets of Beirut.  He is escaping from abusive parents and a life of crime, only to find himself responsible for a motherless baby.
