The film traces the unfolding of the war and a spontaneous popular revolt turned revolution due to the determination of protesters in Libya and internationally.

At the invitation of Bernard-Henry Lévy, and welcomed by the Cannes Festival, four key figures of the Libyan revolution will attend the screening to dedicate their achievement in Libya to their Syrian friends.
