Through the story of a young Beirut woman, Beirut Diaries provides an eyewitness account of the spontaneous sit-in by hundreds of thousands of Lebanese young people after the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri. Through the turbulent experiences, dreams and disillusions of the filmmaker’s young friends, the film explores the critical transformations and crucial questions facing Lebanon in this troubled period.
