Synopsis: Amin, a taciturn young man, stagnates in a small town, in the Algerian Sahara. Housed by the old El Hadja in an isolated house, he immerses himself daily in reading the Koran. One morning, he receives, in an encrypted message, the photo of a young woman, Nour. When she joins him a few days later, the meeting is cold. Yet their presence in this house is no coincidence. They don’t know each other but they have a common goal to achieve.
