Ziad The Second
The documentary is about a Lebanese man that learned that his time on earth isn’t to be taken for granted, after falling out of a balcony and being paralyzed for a year. While he was paralyzed, Ziad promised himself that the day he got back on his feet he would never take his time here for granted. That day eventually came, he got up and left everything behind him and started a new life in a forest where he became more connected to himself, others around him and nature.
