Eight Lebanese artists, brilliant and determined, share their passion and talent on stage at the Al-Madina Metro Theatre in Beirut, a magical place where their paths have crossed and their dreams have come true. Since 2013, evolving off the beaten path, they continued to perform, successfully, tirelessly, until 2020 – as long as the heart of Beirut continued to beat. A moving film by Georges Hachem that celebrates resilience and the power of art.
