A loud bang. Silence. Sirens. Windows wobble, but the needle continues to inject ink under the skin. This is the story of one of the oldest tattoo studios in Jerusalem. In pain on the tattoo chair, Jews, Christians, Muslims and atheists experience a catharsis, open their hearts and tell of their life in Jerusalem, of wishes, hopes and fears. The small tattoo studio "Bizzart" of Poko and Daniel becomes a connecting place for people who otherwise are hostile to each other in this big, old and conflict-laden city. "An authentic cross-section of a contradictory place and its inhabitants." (film reviews.com)
