Short documentary sketching a picture of everyday life in a North African refugee camp. The tent camp, situated in the Algerian part of the Sahara, has for more than twenty years provided shelter for the women and children who fled the violence between the Moroccan army and the Polisario liberation movement. The documentary looks at living conditions in the camps and shows, without narration or music, how exiles manage to maintain their human dignity despite everything.
