Timbuktu

Timbuktu

Not far from Timbuktu, Kidane, a Tuareg cattle herder, lives peacefully in the dunes with his family. In town, the people suffer from the regime of terror imposed by the jihadists determined to control their lives. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even football have been banned. Every day, improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. When Kidane accidentally kills a fisherman who slaughters one of his cows, he has to face the new laws of the religious fundamentalists.
