Algerian journalist Sahafis’ attitude towards life and his satirically written columns caused several assaults on his life. When Sahafi visits the Netherlands to give a lecture, he discusses his position in life with his friend Madjid. Madjid urges him to stay in the Netherlands to apply for political asylum. Sahafi returns to Algeria and while considering his friends’ urgent request, he is killed in a renewed attack. From this moment, time is set still to create two worlds in which Sahafi could have lived both.
