A caravan carrying a dying sheik is traveling through Morocco’s High Atlas Mountains. The sheik’s last wish is to be buried beside his loved ones. But death has a time of its own. After the sheik’s death, his escorts fear the dangerous short route, refusing to transport the body to its destination. Ahmed and Said, two crooks who’ve joined the caravan, pretend they’re familiar with the route and promise to complete the mission. Oliver Laxe’s second feature leads us on an enigmatic odyssey through Morocco’s breathtaking landscapes, captured by cinematographer Mauro Herce. Winner of the Cannes Critics Week award 2016.
