Sam Ali, a young sensitive and impulsive Syrian, left his country for Lebanon to escape the war. To be able to travel to Europe and live with the love of his life, he accepts to have his back tattooed by one of the World’s most sulfurous contemporary artists. However, after turning his own body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam comes to realize that his decision might actually mean anything but freedom.
Nominated for Best International Film at the 2021 Academy Awards, this drama uses the tension between art and commerce as powerful fuel for a sobering story about freedom and human dignity.
