Amina is preparing to leave with the date caravan. Every year, she and many other Toubou women make this 1500 km journey across the Sahara despite the danger, the heat (50°C) and the sandstorms.
For these nomadic women, the journey is the key to their economic independence: with the income from the sale of the dates, a family can live for a year. But Amina, a rebellious 26-year old, has had enough of this long trip. En route, she finds a friend in Mariama and, far from the men, the two young girls share their dreams of a modern, independent life. When they reach their destination, they try to put their plans into action.
