From war-torn Syria, Sam Ali flees to Lebanon. His destination is Paris, he wants to get there and live with his beloved Abeer, who is being forced by her parents to marry another man. A pass to Europe is participation in an unconventional artistic project. Sam’s dream is tattooed on his back – a Schengen visa. Will being turned into a valuable work of art bring Sam the freedom and liberty he craves? What are the limits of artistic expression? The Tunisian director was inspired by the work of controversial conceptual artist Wim Delvoye. Kaouther Ben Hani’s film was nominated for this year’s Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.
