Amir Kamergi found himself in the midst of a revolution. The 23 year old Fulbright scholar, who lived his entire life under the oppressive regime of Tunisia's President, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, witnessed his country transform overnight. It all started with a single act of desperation - Mohamed Bouazizi, an educated Tunisian man who was forced to be a street vendor to support his family, set himself on fire in protest of the totalitarian government. That day, something awoke in Tunisia. Amir went from being an ordinary student to a passionate political activist. This documentary explores the personal story of the triumphs and tragedies that come with revolution.
