From the moment, he arrives in Paris, nothing goes as planned. Aja falls instantly in love with a young American woman (“Erin Moriarty”) in a Swedish furniture store, wakes up in a truck full of Somalian Refugees (“Oscar Nominee Barkhad Abdi”) headed for England, is held hostage in a bureaucratic war, sorts out the love life of a Movie Star (“Oscar Nominee Berenice Bejo”), becomes a rich man for a few hours, crash lands on a merchant ship from a hot-air balloon and more.
