Storyline

Three people looking for a better life become stranded in the desert with little hope of survival in this drama from Spain. Buba (Adoum Moussa) is an auto repairman living in Niger with his brother Mukela (Illiassou Mahamadou Alzouma); their village is mired in poverty, and given Buba's talent as a football player, they decide to travel to Spain, where they believe Buba might have a shot at playing as a professional. Unable to travel legally into Europe, Buba and Mukela pay a smuggler $1,000 each for passage in the back of a panel truck into Algeria, where the can easily pass into Spain. En route, Buba and Mukela meet Violeta (Aminata Kanta), a teenage girl from Mali who is escaping an arranged marriage with a man she hates. During the trip into Algeria, the three begin to have doubts about the smugglers, and their fears become reality when they're dumped in the desert fourteen kilometers from their destination. Buba, Mukela and Violeta are told that they're only a four hour walk away... Written by Anonymous

Ordinary story
13 February 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

A travel to a better life. Two men, a girl, desert, expectations, borders and the new world. Pieces of documentary and story of gray slice of life. Ordinary story of gloomy universe. And definition of happiness 's price. The way of Buba is only page of escape, skin of hope, submission in more bitter circle. Symbols and images. Shadows of delicate expectation. Exploration of fear and hope, courage and obsession. A film like a leaf. Same colors of seasons and taste of dust. Same fire of dream. A basic tall about existence as fight against angels. Nothing impressive, nothing special. A lonely song out of time and words. A drama with many bones. A parable of joy. A message. Small, innocent, bleak. And to feel the freedom near a tree, in a Spanish park.
