Samir (Karim Kassem), a DJ from Cairo, is invited to play in Brussels — the gig of a lifetime. Just as a revolution breaks out in Egypt, his plane is rerouted to a country he's never heard of before: the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg. It all goes awry when he loses his passport and is mistaken for a refugee, forcing him to navigate an absurd tangle of eccentric characters and events. The colourful film shows Samir’s adventures and new encounters on the way to recover his identity.
