The film Bosta (Bus in Arabic), by popular French Lebanese filmmaker Philippe Aractingi, tells the story of seven former schoolmates who meet up again after 15 years, to drive across Lebanese regions in a rundown school bus, which they repaint and renew as a wound they are healing.

The group is trying to introduce a new blend of music in their native villages, a mix of the traditional dance, the Dabkeh, coupled with a techno beat; a mix that embodies this generation that grew up too fast. This group of friends tries to bring a modern twist to the past in a world that has lost all bearings.

The bus thus takes its passengers across Lebanon on an emotionally bumpy journey of self-discovery and re-acquaintance with the multiple identities of their country.
