    • It’s summer 2003 in Tunisia. A man on a moped prowls the streets of Tunis, with a razor blade in hand. Known as Challat, he is on a personal mission: to slash the derrieres of women strolling along the city’s sidewalks. From one neighbourhood to another, the most unlikely of stories circulate about him. He is a mysterious figure, shrouded in fantasy, all the while instilling terror. After the revolution, one woman sets out to track him down, determined to clear up the mystery of Challat, at any cost.
