This documentary was the grand prize winner at the 1988 U.S. Film Festival. Three adult sisters from the elite upper-class of Beirut society pay lip-service to social change and talk about themselves from the luxurious comfort of their family's 200-year-old castle. The biggest problem faced by the Bustros family is that the chandeliers occasionally vibrate from the distant explosion of bombs and artillery.
