Synopsis

December 2015: on the internet, a video has been shared and viewed over 1 million times in 24 hours. You can see a little girl, about 10 years old, with a white dress, posing for a traditional wedding picture but in the arms of a man who could be her grandfather…
The scene takes place in Beyrouth, near the Mediterranean see. Bystanders stopped, shocked, calling out to the husband, asking the little girl about her age. The video is choking, almost incredible. This video, with actors, has been published by Lebanese militants fighting against underage marriage. It created a global buzz, and pointed out an old and well-established practice.
In Lebanon, like in a hundred other countries, underage marriages are possible. In this report, Gabrielle Dréan meets girls, Muslims or Christians, who are married too young. In this country between Orient and Occident, where religious authorities govern wedding laws, the journalist meets religious leaders, but also political leaders to understand how this kind of union can still be possible.
