Arthur Rambo

Karim is the next big thing in the Parisian literary salons; a young Arab that has sneaked into the high-life of the intellectual elite, living his dream. However, the past lurks around the corner. Arthur Rambo, his online alter ego from long-forgotten times, hiding homophobic and antisemitic jokes under his belt, steps out of the virtual shadows, threatening to tear down Karim’s current success. In today’s world, where online personas have substituted our real image, scripta manent: they persist and they hurt. No mistake can be erased, no sin is forgiven.
