This poignant international co-production portrays a Syrian refugee separated from his fiancéwho trades his skin for money as a living canvas. Tattooed by a controversial artist and committed to sitting on display in a museum, Sam Ali’s body quickly becomes a valuable commodity in the international art market.  
 
With elements of romance, dark comedy, drama and tragedy, Tunisian writer-director Kaouther Ben Hania offers a nuanced and thought-provoking exploration of the complex guises of captivity and the price of freedom.
