Lebanese Drama Tackles Impact of Marriage Failure on Children
Bint al Hayy (Neighborhood Girl) is a title that expresses the theme of the new series scripted by Marwan Najjar and directed by Samir Habshi to be aired soon.
Based on the way of Charles Dickens who is known for writing exciting stories blended with a satire smile classified as black comedy, Najjar goes beyond the TV routine through a social drama about a small family comprising of the parents and their less than 10 years daughter. The family lives in a small neighborhood with the house doors kept open and the inhabitants living as one family. But this small family faces some problems particularly between the husband and wife whose relation reaches a deadlock. The impact of this dispute appears on the mother and the behavior of the children.
The father fails in his relation with his wife and the mother feels sorry for the efforts she makes for this failure marriage. She looks at her child as an obstacle, which spurs her to accept what she doesn’t want, so her daughter becomes her enemy and the people in the neighborhood become the witness on the situation of this family.
“In this purposive series, we tackle the marriage tie and its impact on the psychology of the children but in a real framework as everything is subject to reviewing,” Najjar told the daily al Nahar.
Costarring in the series are more than 30 actors the most prominent of whom is Elisar Hamoush who plays the role as mother; Ziad Said as the father and Caroline Haddad as the small child -- Albawaba.com
