Mamatal, the son of a Tuareg chief, leads the filmmakers on a journey across the Sahara on a mission to draw attention to the suffering of his people and to help them avert extinction. However, when the government of Mali collapses, he finds himself and his people caught up in an international crisis - a battle between Tuareg rebels fighting for independence and Al Qaeda-in-the-Maghreb, bent on taking over the regions as a base to impose sharia law and to plot attacks against Western interests.
This compelling documentary by Emmy-winning Producer/Director Robyn Symon (Director, Transformation: The Life & Legacy of Werner Erhard) is one of the first to take an exclusive look behind the international headlines of the 'War on Terror' in North Africa, exposing local government corruption and aggressive neglect of the indigenous people who might be the best hope for defeating the Jihadists.
