Very Big Shot
Available on iTunes
"Very Big Shot" opens with a bang, literally, as three brothers find themselves in the middle of a struggle with an armed man. One of the brothers, Ziad, shoots the man dead. His brother Jad, however, takes the fall and is sent to jail. Cut to five years later. In the intervening years, Ziad has turned their modest family bakery into a drug dealing hub for a local gangster. With Jad’s imminent release, however, he wants to go legit, much to the chagrin of his boss, who asks him to do one last drop-off as a personal favor. When that-drop off is across the border in war-torn Syria, anything can happen. From the people that brought you Nadine Labaki's "WHERE DO WE GO NOW?" and the acclaimed animated adaptation of Jibran Khalil Jibran's "THE PROPHET" comes "A SMARTLY MADE AND WINNINGLY ENTERTAINING" movie (Cine Outsider) that "DEFIES EXPECTATIONS AND IS A HUGELY IMPRESSIVE CAPER" (BFI, London Film Festival).
