Tarik is a loner who seeks enlightenment. Ornithologist Chaya is looking for a migrating bird from Siberia. And botanist Thelma believes she has given up looking for anything. These three meet in the magical city of Tanger, at a scientific conference about the dangers of desertification. None of them could have imagined that this chance encounter would lead to passionate love, and to decisions that fundamentally changed their lives and their worldviews.

Morocco and Tanger form the backdrop for a love story full of adventures, a story that tells of our longing for togetherness and freedom.
