Shortly after Gaddafi's demise, the filmmaker accompanies members of the disgraced Tabu tribe along the road to their impoverished desert territory near the Algeria-Niger-Chad borders 1000 Km from Tripoli. Electricity has been on again for barely two months, mobile phones haven't worked for seven. Fuel is scarce and queues are endlessly long. Two widespread weapons are in use: sat phones and Kalashnikovs. Closely guarded by rebel escorts for security reasons, she follows the illegal immigrants route all the way to the Niger border. She discovers how Gaddafi challenged Europe at the beginning of the revolution by sending and financing flows of migrants. People, rebels, smugglers and victims of the old regime tell their stories. Some of the desert's well-preserved secrets now come to light. Written by Marie-Laure Widmer Baggiolini
