Ibrahim, Soliman, Manar and Altayeb, filmmakers and friends for more than 45 years, idealists and intensely humane. They were reunited again, after long years of distance and Exile, to bring life back to their old dream: make cinema a reality in the Sudan. They are determined to leave a trace of their passage and to inspire the love of films. Throughout the images they created, the ones they lost and the ones that remain a desire, the beautiful and horrific faces of their country appear.
