In the arid and unforgiving Tenere desert of Niger, artificial borders from another era divide the land of the Tuareg and the Toubou. Boubacar, an Ivorian man, is trying to reach the Mediterranean coast in the hope of a better life. Penniless, he finds the means to continue his journey with the help of Ibrahim, a Tuareg gold digger.
