Stable Unstable

Director

Synopsis

It is December 31 in Beirut, seven people are visiting their psychologist, clinging to the hope of making sense of the past year. Inside the elevator that leads to the clinic and on to the couch of their therapist's office, they stare at their problems in the face, and try to define what is important to them. From the patients to the building's residents, different stories of lonely souls intertwine and become revealed. All of them are struggling to find a semblance of stability in an unstable country.
