Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

This documentary chronicles the life of one family whose home in Beirut is bombed, taking viewers beyond the facts and statistics of nightly news reports and into one family's experience of war -- ordering events with their logic, feelings and perceptions. Gaby Bustros left her home in Beirut to work and study abroad. When Gaby learned in 1981 that her family had been bombed, she returned home to the vents chronicled in this film.
