Not far away from the ancient Malian city of Timbuktu, a town suffers
the regime of terror imposed by the jihadis, determined to control
them by their faith and religion. Music, laughter, cigarettes and even football have
been banned. Women have become shadows but resist with dignity.
Every day, court judgments set tragic and absurd verdicts. Kidane and his family have been
far from the chaos in Timbuktu. But his fate will change abruptly.
