Production

The documentary was produced, directed, and edited by Pierre Dawalibi. It was shot in Lebanon. It intended to send the Lebanese nation a wake up call and give the Lebanese youth hope and yet responsibility to take the right decisions in building their country and develop it. The documentary gathers 45 carefully selected Lebanese figures who start showing how beautiful Lebanon is and how terribly ugly people have made it. Then it states every practical issue in their daily life: social, political, economic, ecological and humanitarian. When reaching to solutions, those who were supposed to be a solution turn out to be the real problem: The judicial system, media and civil society. They show us that the only solutions left to make Lebanon a great country are education and elections.
