Mohammed Soudani, Switzerland, Algeria, 2010o
This is not how the young Swiss couple had imagined their desert trip: On their journey towards Timbuktu, they break down and get stranded in the Algerian Tar Desert. Oliver is more concerned about the broken-down truck than Elena, which is why she explores the oasis alone. In the process, she meets two women: a mysterious fortune teller and the young Aya. And then there is Saïd's small public telephone exchange, which connects Tar with the outside world. While Elena discovers a new world, Oliver wants to break off the journey as soon as possible.
