For the Tubu people, living in the Sahara desert is both harsh and very simple. Men and women have clearly defined roles. The men are camel breeders, the women are tied to the home. For anything a woman wants to do, she needs her husband’s permission. For the women, this condition would be unbearable if it wasn’t for the annual caravan that takes them on a 1,500 kilometer journey on foot across the desert to collect dates. Even if the conditions are extreme, selling their date harvest brings them economic independence, pride and self-confidence. Domagali, Amina and Mariama are four women whose destinies draw us into their world. Conflicts between tradition and modernity, between individual freedom and clan solidarity punctuate their stories.
