Synopsis

The tragic story of the Gemayel family goes hand in hand with that of Lebanon.

Their fierce struggles, uncompromising duels and questionable choices have forever impacted the history of the country, from its independence to its inexorable fall into the chaos of war.

For more than half a century, Pierre, Bachir and Amine, a father and his two sons, fought relentlessly to defend a Christian-led Republic against regional pressures and interference.
