The Tuaregs are a people who have been feared, admired and respected for thousands of years, since they set out to conquer the desert. However, lately, a disreputable group of their own race has been dragging the people’s reputation through the mud. Rebels, despicable mercenaries and brutal fanatics driven by extremist ideologies are laying waste to a glorious heritage... Leading them is Omar el Khebir, Colonel Ghaddafi ’s former bodyguard; a heartless murderer. Gacel Mugtar, a humble truck driver, will have the responsibility of upholding the Tuareg’s code of honour and eliminating Omar and as many of his followers as possible. But to do it he must sacrifice everything. Is he willing?
