Abandoned in a refugee camp in the middle of the desert ever since Morocco drove them out of the Western Sahara forty years ago, the Sahrawis are a forgotten people.
Sidahmed, Zaara and Taher only know their homeland through their parents’ stories. The twenty-somethings spend their days fixing cars, fighting for political change and shooting the breeze.
As sand blows over the desert, Hamada captures the sense of limbo they inhabit with poetic camerawork and the understated humour of a Richard Linklater film. With all of the expectations, strength and dreams of youth, they find ways to expand beyond the physical borders.
