Kidane is a peaceful cattle herder living with his wife and two children in the mountains outside of Timbuktu. The town is now ruled by religious fundamentalists whose methods grow more and more severe as time goes on. The villagers are forbidden to laugh, listen to music, smoke or play soccer. The women are forced to live in the shadows. Kidane and his family have been spared from the insanity by remaining in the mountains. However, a tragic event interrupts their quiet existence and forces them to confront the town's Jihadist rulers.
