BEIRUT - On 17 October 2019, a revolution broke out in Lebanon that is still raging among the people. The - young, secular - population is trying to break free, while the divided sectarian power apparatus is digging deeper. The ongoing Lebanese popular protests resulted in the largest national protest since the civil war (75-90). All Lebanese, regardless of their frame of reference within the melting pot of cultures, unite under one banner against the corrupt commanders

Almost a year later, Eugenie and Robbe go on research and make a video report zooming in on stories in the political impasse. The revolutionary spirit is there, but will they succeed in creating a new political system? What is the outcome of the series of uprisings that are still in progress?
