Nouri Bouzid's award-winning film about the making-of a terrorist.
25-year-old Bahta (Lotfi Abdelli) dreams of a career as a break-dancer, but break-dancing hasn't got a high reputation in Tunisia, the police scares the dancers away. Bahta's attempt to flee to Europe fails, as the Iraque war starts. Frustrated and without perspective he gets in contact with a terrorist group. As they recruit him, behind the character Bahta the actor Lotfi Abdelli emerges and blames the director for manipulating him. He says, he wanted to play a dancer, not a terrorist. The setting is unmasked as a set, the plot as a film, fiction and reality become blurry.
