Information

Timbuktu in West Africa, 2012: Islamist rebels capture the city and establish sharia law. Ali, a former shepherd boy, is one of them; he despises music, dancing and everything that makes life fun. Kadija is the daughter of a guardian of the sacred manuscripts of the ancient city and she flouts the jihadists’ laws. Her path crosses with Ali’s when he and his fellow fighters blow up a famous music club in the city. Host: Tobias Bungter
