In the complex geo-political spot of “Shambouk” in North Lebanon, a few kilometres away from Syria, where borders, religious doctrines and communities intersect, lives Haykal, a 60- year-old Christian farmer. There, he settled a farm, a restaurant and is building his home, with his own hands that are never too tired to work. Those Who Remain follows Haykal’s struggle to stay in his land amidst sectarian tensions, fear and hopelessness.
