This production ended on 23/02/2018


Based on a true story this north African comedy is the tale of
Ibrahim, a Moroccan soldier, who is sent to a deserted island
off the Mediterranean coast of Morocco to monitor the movements
of smugglers and illegal immigrants. One day, Ibrahim finds a
Sub-Saharan man, Mamadou, washed up on the beach. While the
unlikely pair tries to survive on the miniscule island, they inadvertently
trigger a diplomatic incident that crescendos into a regional military crisis.

89 minutes, Ahmed Boulane, Morocco, 2016 (NC)
