Synopsis

Sam Ali, a sensitive but impulsive young Syrian man, is forced to leave his country for Lebanon to escape the war. In order to travel to Europe to be with the love of his life, he agrees to have his back tattooed by one of the world’s most sulphurous contemporary artists. By turning his body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam finds himself held captive to the whims of the artist and the art world, proving his decision might mean anything but the freedom he so fiercely sought.
