Tunis, before the revolution.

Tunis, avant la révolution.  Un homme à moto, armé d’un rasoir, balafrerait les fesses des femmes qui ont la malchance de croiser sa route.  On l’appelle le Challat, “le balafreur”.  

Fait divers local?  Manipulation politique?  Sauf que personne ne l’a jamais vu.  Dix ans plus tard, une jeune réalisatrice décide d’enquêter pour élucider le mystère du Challat de Tunis
