    Busan IFF

    Nada is going home. Or at least she wants to. When she comes back to Lebanon, she realizes she’s a foreigner in her own country. But there’s still a place she calls home: an abandoned house in ruins, haunted by the presence of her grandfather who disappeared mysteriously during the civil war. Something happened in this house. Something violent. A young woman searching for the truth and discovering herself.

Chouaib has directed five short films, including the critically acclaimed FROM UNDER LY BED (2005), which was presented at the Semaine de la critique at the Festival de Cannes.
