Synopsis : 

 

For the past ten years or so, climate change and agricultural overexploitation have forced nomad tribes from the high plateau of Atlas in Morocco to become sedentary. Many are those who left for the city but found nothing but misery. The other option is to stay, for the long run, which means that they now have to plan the future, starting by building a school.

This is how a tribe in the desert decided to stay on its land and fight for an education for its children. A dream that does not come true without difficulties, because when a child goes to school, they cannot work next to their parents.
