Long synopsis : Elia Suleiman, the central character and narrator, escapes from Palestine seeking an alternative homeland, only to realize that Palestine is always there, just behind him. The promise of a new life soon turns into a comedy of errors. However far he travels, from Paris to New York or Doha, something reminds him home: the police, border controls and racism are never far away… And while he does everything he can to integrate into a new society, trying to erase the traces of his nationality, everyone constantly reminds him of where he has come from. As he wanders and wonders, through searching and self-searching, Elia Suleiman asks the fundamental question: where can we truly call home? From award-winning director Elia Suleiman, a burlesque saga exploring identity, nationality and belonging… in which humour brings new hope for others and for Suleiman himself.
