Samir, a young DJ from Egypt, is on his way to a prestigious championship in Brussels. But then his flight is diverted to a tiny country he’s never heard of, and where he’s mistaken for a refugee. 

A musical comedy about a young DJ who wins a mixing contest in Cairo and gets to go to the mecca of electronic music– Brussels. Only he lands 200 kilometres away, in the strange land of Luxembourg. Director Adolf El Assal based his writing on his own experience, when he came to Luxembourg inadvertently as a child. The music is provided by the famous Luxembourg producer Eric Bintz.
