THE EXTRAORDINARY JOURNEY OF THE FAKIR takes us on a wild ride of coincidence and circumstance. Aja, a young fakir (magician) from the streets of India arrives in Paris in search of his past and his future. He falls head-over-heels for Marie, whom he meets amongst the cabinets and couches in an IKEA store, and plans to meet up with her again the next day.

As he tries to make his way back to the city of love, Aja finds himself crossing many borders and meeting many colourful characters.
