Khalass 2007
Ahmad and Robby were once young idealists who fought for freedom as part of a left-wing cadre in Lebanon's civil war, but years later the fighting ended in 1990 they've become jaded and disillusioned with the direction their nation has taken. Ahmad has lost his job as a reporter, and his girlfriend has left him for a rich old man. Meanwhile, Robby, once a documentary filmmaker, prefers to film kids and animals rather than deal with people. The lead actor in the video he is filming, a homeless orphan, is hit by a car and dies in hospital because he has no money to pay for treatment.
Both Robbie and Ahmed begin to believe that their former party leader, now a wealthy businessman, is the man primarily responsible for their sense of betrayal. To a lesser degree both the wealthy man who seduced Ahmed's lover and the hospital director who refused to treat Robbie's actor are also seen as symbols of moral corruption and decline. Against a backdrop of social fragmentation and merciless, profit-driven greed, Robbie and Ahmed abandon their dreams and ambitions and plot revenge.
