At the edge of the vast Mauritanian desert lies the small coastal town of Nouadhibou. There, seventeen-year-old Abdallah is visiting his mother before emigrating to Europe. The melancholic young man finds himself a stranger in his own country; unable to speak the local language, he shies away from village customs and festivities and is less interested in traditional dress than the latest European fashions.
