Following the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister, Rafic Hariri in February 2005, thousands of Lebanese youths spontaneously set up camps in Beirut's Martyrs' Square to rally for an independent Lebanon. However, these youths, who had been born during the civil war that started in 1975, find that not all Lebanese are united as one -- different religious sects, political sects and visions for a future Lebanon keep them deeply divided. Through the experiences of twenty-five-year-old Nadine Zaidan, we get a firsthand look at the passionate debates among Lebanese youths, as they discuss hot-topic issues such as the Syrian occupation of Lebanon, Hezbollah and America's intents towards Lebanon.
