Isabel and Antonio are human rights activists. They were awakened by the loud noise of sirens and the roar of thousands of screams. They grabbed whatever was at hand, including a camcorder. They switched it on and started recording what their eyes could not believe: the savage assault and destruction of the largest protest camp ever raised in the Sahara: Gdeim Izik. The Moroccan security forces burning haimas, firing tear gas all around and beating whoever lied ahead. Shots were heard. Children, seniors, men, women, running as much as they could to get out of sight. The youngest started answering back with stones at the armed police. Some people protected the foreign activists. They were told: "it's time to get out, too much risk." They flew from the chaos through the arid land in a 4x4. When they tried to contact international press, they found that their satellite phone had been disabled. Antonio and Isabel had to find a way to show these images to the world. It wouldn't be easy. They would have to spend nine days hidden in a safe house during one of the most obscure incidents in Moroccan history.
