Abderrahmane Sissako's drama Timbuktu tells the story of Kidane (Ibrahim Ahmed), a cattle herder who lives in the mountains outside the titular city with his wife and children. They keep a distance from the religious fundamentalists who control the town, and also grow more and more severe in their leadership as time passes. However, one day the family is forced to confront the growing terror head-on.
