2021 Oscar Nominee for Best International Feature Film!


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 artist.

Turning his own body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam comes to realize that his decision might actually mean anything but freedom.

“It weaves together satire and humane political awareness to create an original fable about art, privilege, freedom and identity.” —​NPR
