Full description

Algeria, 1954. While the rebellion rumbles in the valley, two very different men are forced to flee together across the Atlas Mountains. In the midst of an icy winter, Daru, the reclusive teacher, has to escort Mohamed, a villager accused of murder. Pursued by horsemen seeking justice and vengeful settlers, the two men decide to confront the unknown. Together they fight to gain their freedom.
