Film synopsis: 
When, in the beginning of the tenth century, the IBADITS settled in El-Atteuf, currently in the Algerian Sahara, looking for a safe haven from the FATIMIDS’ attacks, they considered their community to be in a stage of survival. Such means that luxury and exuberance were forbidden and the members of the community should be content with the very minimum. The austerity reflected in the style of the IBADITAS buildings of the M’zab is a result of a voluntary search for the essential, which largely responds to religious preoccupations
