In today's Beirut, a civilian dispute blown out of proportion finds Tony (Adel Karam), a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser (Kamel El Basha), a Palestinian refugee, facing off in court. As the media circus surrounding the case threatens a social explosion in divided Lebanon, Tony and Yasser reconsider their values and beliefs as revelations of trauma complicate their understanding of one another.

"'The Insult' drives the point home while offering insight into the Middle East conflict (it's at least part history lesson) by way of a riveting courtroom drama enhanced by terrific performances." - Arizona Republic

"Well-written, thoughtful and revelatory in all the right ways." - Toronto Star
