Martyr

For Hassane, a young man from an impoverished neighbourhood, life has stopped making sense. All he has left is a close group of friends, brought together by a shared sense of marginalization. In an effort to shake off the pressure s of an increasingly desperate family situation, Hassane decides to lose himself in the azure waters of his favourite swimming spot on Beirut’s rocky shore. However, despite innocent intentions, Hassane’s actions result in a tsunami of grief and powerlessness that engulfs his friends, family, and the community around him, changing their lives forever.
