In the Moroccan desert, two men are in search of the same fragments from heaven.
For the nomad Mohamed, finding one of those valuable meteorites would change the life of his family.
For the scientist Abderrahman, those celestial objects could answer his questionings about the origin of life.
Their search merges into a spiritual quest that echoes with everyone else’s.
