A caravan escorts a dying Sheikh through the Moroccan Atlas. His last wish is to be buried with his loved ones. But death does not wait. The caravaneers, fearful of the mountain pass, refuse to transport the corpse. Ahmed and Saïd, two rogues travelling with the caravan, pretend they know the way and promise to take the corpse to its destiny. In another world, Shakib is chosen to travel to the mountains with a mission: to help the improvised caravaneers.


Oliver LAXE lives and works in Morocco. His first feature-length film, [You All Are Captains] premiered at the Directors’ Fortnight of Cannes Film Festival in 2010, where it received the FIPRESCI award. He is one of the founders of Zeitun Films.
