Movie Info

In the High Atlas Mountains at an indeterminate time in the past, a caravan of travelers searches for a pass that will allow them to return an ailing elderly Sufi master to his home to die. Among the party is Ahmed, a rascal and a survivor, who is willing to do whatever it takes to rise up from his miserable condition. Ahmed is particularly inspired by the Sufi master and his wife and, upon the old man's death, he becomes aware of his own innate abilities and takes up the leadership of the caravan. On his journey, he receives the assistance of Shakib, a young man sent on a mission from a special place in contemporary Morocco.

Shot in stunning scenery of vast plains, moonlit lakes and forbidding mountains, visually it's breathtaking but it moves at patience-testing speed with non-professional actors and ultimately Laxe leaves the meaning open to interpretation.
