In 2012 hardline clerics issued a death fatwa against Iranian singer Shahin Najafi and placed a $100,000 bounty on his head. But refusing to go the way of Rushdie who spent a decade in hiding, Shahin says, “Rushdie could sit at home and write. I’m a musician. I have to perform.” The film follows the twists and turns of this dramatic situation, which coincides with Europe’s growing refugee crisis. Though Shahin no longer shares the refugees’ faith, he feels connected to them culturally and has renewed energy to be a voice for the countless victims of war flooding into Germany.
