Nicolas is an artist, a filmmaker, who asks for nothing more than to be able to express himself in freedom. A freedom that is the cause of many problems... From the start, in Georgia, the ‘ideologues’ wish to silence him, considering his work not in tune with the rules in place. Faced with their determination, Nicolas leaves his native country for France —the land of freedom and democracy. But his ‘state of grace’ will be short-lived. Censored in his home country and rejected in the West, Nicolas becomes a ‘Chantrapas’: a good-for-nothing and an outcast.
