Constantly shifting dunes shape the scorching landscape...unprotected skin and eyes are blasted raw by stinging sand storms. This is home to the fiercest tribe in the Sahara Desert. Traveling by night, they navigate by the stars. Their dwelling is a tent, and they face a constant search for water. Bound by centuries old traditions, they are the proudest warriors on earth, and they abide by no man’s laws...other than their own. Unable to impose their will on these desert nomads, the Arabs named them Tuareg - “the abandoned of God"...
Mark Harmon stars as Gacel Sayah, the most fearless and noble of all the desert warriors. When two escaped political prisoners stumble into the Tuareg camp, they are welcomed and given shelter by the tribe. A corrupt military unit soon tracks them down, capturing one man and killing the other, along with several Tuareg. With the ability to survive for days in the desert without food or water, Sayah vows to rescue the captured man and avenge the attack on his people in order to uphold the honor and law of the Tuareg!
