Expectations: "Having left on a long journey across the desert, Moussa suddenly shows up in his village again one day. He clearly never reached his destination. Completely transformed by his ordeal, he is now apathetic, locked in silence, and indifferent to everything around him. But his creditors, who lent him the money for his journey, are growing impatient."--container.
"Adam, a former swimming champion in his sixties, is a pool attendant at a hotel in Chad. When the hotel gets taken over by new Chinese owners, he is forced to give up his job to his son Abdel, leaving Adam humiliated and resentful. Meanwhile the country is in the throes of a civil war. Rebel forces are attacking the government and the authorities demand the people contribute to the " war effort" with money or volunteers old enough to fight. Adam is constantly harassed for his contribution, but he is penniless. In a moment of weakness, Adam makes a decision that he will forever regret."--container.

The only screaming man is me after watching this movie! Overall the movie was a huge let down with the only interesting part of it is seeing parts of Chad and the lifestyle in that area. The story is nothing worthwhile. Don't bother.
