For more than thirty years tens of thousands of Saharawi have lived in makeshift camps as refugees in the Algerian desert. As a result, children are forced to travel far to complete their studies. Many are trained in Cuba during a period of more than twelve years away from home. This documentary chronicles the daily lives of these students both in the desert and Cuba in a round trip full of contrasts.
Nicolas Muñoz began his professional career in the world of photography and later he dedicated himself to the tasks of directing, producing and screenwriting. To date he has written and directed five short films, the documentary Susuís Journey and The Saharan Teacher and two feature-length films Rewind and Pets. In 2008 he also published his first novel Cenizas, awarded with the Javier Tomeo novel prize.
