12 year-old Zain , a hardened, streetwise 12-year-old Lebanese boy sues his parents in protest of the life they have given him.
Capernaum tells the tale of 12 year-old Zain who attempts to sue his parents for giving birth to him. The reason? His stateless status means his rights are often denied, and he faces immeasurable injustices. Through the eyes of this child, we see the chaotic and transactional nature of life in Lebanon.
