Synopsis: 

Two Moroccans attempt a crazy gamble to create, in the desert, an orchard to prevent young farmers in their region to yield to the mirages of emigration. They combine their forces. The idea comes from the younger: develop a green barrier against the advancing sand. The two men who came back, disillusioned with the mirages of emigration, have embarked on the adventure with them, convinced that their action will enable young farmers in their region to succeed there. Will the initiative pay off? A small school has already bloomed next to the mosque for the children of the village.
