From the publisher's description: "To the western world, the veiled men looking down proudly from the back of their camels have always embodied the noble knights of the desert. Up to now, we have heard little about the mothers, the wives and sisters of the Tuareg nomads in the forgotten edges of the Sahara. This film documents in a fascinating way the independence and vitality of those sisters of the dunes in their quarrels with their husbands. These women reflect about their lives, their children, the roles their husbands play, and the differences between their traditional lives and of those who move to the city."
