Nadine Labaki's "Where Do We Go Now?" has been around the block, festival-wise - playing at Cannes and Toronto before coming to Sundance.

But Labaki, the star and director of the delightful 2007 drama "Caramel," deserves to be heard around the world.

This musical comedy, like "Caramel," looks at the fractured lives of Lebanon's Muslims and Christians through a warm-hearted female perspective.

It's set in a remote Lebanese village where Christians and Muslims live side by side. Usually, they live in harmony, but less so when tensions from the outside world intrude. The women of this village devise several schemes to set things right — enlisting the local imam and priest, hiring Ukrainian strippers, or serving up hashish-laden goodies.

(Warning: There is a mild swear word — starts with an "A" — toward the end of the trailer.)

"Where Do We Go Now?" plays in the Spotlight program of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
