Sami, a Swiss man of Algerian descent, is pushing 30 and looking for work, which has so far eluded him. He goes through a series of odd interviews with the Swiss defence department, vying for a job that involves surveillance of websites to fend off potential terrorist attacks – and it seems employment may finally be in the offing. When his family questions the ethics of the position, however, Sami’s desire for independence comes into direct conflict with his conscience.
