Freedom

A Feature film by Sharunas Bartas

Produced by Gemini Films

Release in France : 13/12/2000

    Synopsis

    Three traffickers flee along Morocco’s Atlantic coast after fumbling a deal.
    Dizzy, Rotamon and Fabia travel by night and hide by day. When Rotamon takes off alone, Dizzy and the young woman hide out with a group of Berbers, and then head off into the desert without food.
    They’re suspicious of each other; he despises her, she fears him. They go from one oasis to the next, unable to get their bearings. Their wandering leads them to an abandoned mine dating back to colonial times where two families live in abject poverty.
    These people take them in, feed them, welcome them into their community.
    One night, Dizzy kills one of the men. Once again he must flee with Fabia. Once again they’re alone, more lost than ever. But for the first time in her life, Fabia is in love.
    With Dizzy, who kills her, to then throw himself off a cliff.
