In the courtroom the judge asks a 12-year-old boy Zain: — why are you suing your own parents? — For giving me life — he answers. The Little Zain, like Jesus Christ who performed healing miracles two thousand years ago in Capernaum, reminds of the strength and courage inherent to the heroes from the most beautiful fairy tales. Elevated by the charismatic performances of amateur actors, the film delves into the story that portrays raw and bold injustice, and the world that lurks somewhere between myth and reality.
