FRAGMENTS FROM HEAVEN
(Documentary, 90’, Morocco)
Looking for stones in the desert of Morocco might seem ludicrous, unless those stones are celestial and able to change one’s life forever. That’s the story of Mohamed (a nomad), Abderrahmane (a scientist), and other Bedouins. They all search for the same stone, but each one has his own reasons.
