Movie Info

Although the film itself is fictitious, it is partly based on real events that occurred in 1996. In August 1996, bus-drivers Marcel Van Loock and Wim Moreels are apprehended by the Moroccan Custom Duty Service for drug traffic. Inside there bus, hidden behind a false compartment, they have discovered 700 pounds of Hasj. Although the owner of the bus company is arrested as well and makes a full confession, clearly indicating that both drivers were unaware of the hidden drugs, the Moroccan judge sentences both men to 5 years in jail, in the Moroccan prison of Tangiers. Nothing could have prepared the 2 men for what life would be on the inside of a Moroccan prison. Without food, clothes or medical care, they must learn how to take care of themselves if they are to survive their stay in prison. Corrupt guards, a consul that doesn't care, corrupt lawyers and judges, and frequent beatings are only part of the terrible prison-life - while at the same time their families at home are left without any information, any help or any hope - finding out that even their own governments don't care for Belgian people in prisons abroad.
