synopsis

A caravan escorts a dying Sheikh through the Moroccan Atlas. His last wish is to be buried with his loved ones. But death does not wait. The caravaneers, fearful of the mountain pass, refuse to transport the corpse. Ahmed and Saïd, two rogues traveling with the caravan, pretend they know the way and promise to take the corpse to its destiny.

In another world, Shakib is chosen to travel to the mountains with a mission: to help the improvised caravaneers.
