One man's mission to save his people before they disappear.


Anne Borin PR


Mamatal, the son of a Tuareg chief, leads the filmmakers on a journey across the Sahara on a mission to draw attention to the suffering of his people and to help them avert extinction. But when the government of Mali collapses, he finds himself and his people caught up in an international crisis - a battle between Tuareg rebels fighting for independence and Al Qaeda-in-the-Maghreb, bent on taking over the regions as a base to impose sharia law to plot attacks against western interests. This compelling documentary by Emmy winning Producer/Director Robyn Symon (Director, Transformation: The Life & Legacy of Werner Erhard) is one of the first to take an exclusive look behind the international headlines of the War on Terror in NORTH AFRICA, exposing local government corruption and aggressive neglect of an indigenous people who might be the best hope for defeating the jihadists.
