Since ayatollahs put out a fatwa on him for insulting Islam, Shahin Najafi’s life has been in constant danger. In his rock and rap pieces he often mentions the subjects which are taboo in today’s Iran. Currently, he lives in Germany but his every concert poses a risk, both for musicians and the audience. The film is a portrait of a restless artist who needs to hide and often change his looks, but nevertheless does not stop performing.
