Exposed is the working title of a film about ordinary people in extreme circumstances. The young photographer Victor travels around the world to photograph people in desperate and threatening situations. He visits battlefields, refugee camps and disaster areas. He is driven by the belief that pain is the emotion that causes us to learn. And therefore he makes pictures that hurt. Gradually, however, he becomes entangled in his own quest. Ultimately not so much to the people he photographed and their circumstances leads as well to himself.
