Marwann is too preoccupied with adolescence to take interest in the Arab Spring demonstrations taking place throughout Paris. When Marwann stumbles into a street rally and has his picture taken by a journalist, he lands on the cover of the biggest newspaper in France and accidentally becomes the face of the Arab Spring. Marwann is instantly branded as a hero and the cool kid at his school. To win over a crush, Marwann embraces his new identity, only to find himself on a journey of connection to his roots.
