The movie

Two childhood friends are crossing the Algerian desert in their hunt for a terrorist. As they go deeper and deeper in the barrenness, they start having fevered hallucinations.

Algeria, 1994. S. and Lotfi are hunting a dangerous terrorist named Abou Leila. And yet, although they have the same target, their objectives are different. S. is determined to find the criminal whatever it takes, while Lotfi seems more interested in leading his friend away from civilization. A fevered directorial debut which subjects its protagonist and its audience alike to violent hallucinations.
