The film is a study about having to question one’s ideals when faced with a much more complicated reality.
Jesper Ganslandt, Director
On the eve of June 28th 2011, Swedish journalists Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson put everything at stake by illegally crossing the border from Somalia into Ethiopia. They want to report on how the ruthless hunt for oil affected the population of the isolated and conflict-rid- den Ogaden region. Five days later, they lay wounded in the desert sand, shot and captured by the Ethiopian army.
