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 the World’s most sulphurous contemporary artists. Turning his own body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam will however come to realise that his decision might actually mean anything but freedom… The Man Who Sold His Skin won numerous awards and was shortlisted for the Best International Feature Film Academy Award.
