Not far from the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu, now ruled by religious fundamentalists, proud cattle herder Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his family. In town, the people suffer, powerless, under the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists. Music, laughter, cigarettes and soccer have been banned. Every day, improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu, but for how long? Academy Award Nominee: Best Foreign Language Film.
