Synopsis
The Enclave; home to Lebanon's dispossessed. Khalil has made his life here, catering to the needs of UN troops on the Israeli-Lebanon border. His small electrical shop has served him and his family well, has sustained them through turbulent years of conflict, and now it is time to let go, to live his final days in peace. But when a young Irishman walks in to his shop Khalil is forced to confront an act of horrifying violence from his past. Years before he was witness to the lynching of an Irish UN peacekeeper. What happened next has remained a secret for fifteen years. And now, the son returns. Exploring in intimate and compelling detail the effects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on everyday Lebanese life, THE BROKEN CEDAR turns on one man's terrible crisis of conscience as he attempts to reconcile past actions with present consequences.
