Very Big Shot / Mir-Jean Bou Chaaya

Jad is about to be released from jail for a crime his older brother Ziad committed five years ago, and Ziad has decided to stop his drug-dealing business and start a new chapter in life. Ziad’s best-laid plans are hindered by an unexpected turn of events that leads to his involvement in a large-scale smuggling operation to transport the amphetamine Captagon across the border. Further complicating things, when Jad is set free, he wants to join Ziad for one last run before getting out of the drug trade for good, while Joe, the pair’s third brother, strongly disapproves of the whole idea. Eventually, Ziad makes a life-changing discovery that will lead the three brothers on a new journey altogether.
