Marocco: La Isla

Marocco: La Isla

Ibrahim, a Moroccan soldier, is sent to a deserted island off the Mediterranean coast of Morocco. His orders are to monitor the movements of drug smugglers and illegal immigrants, but –a pawn in a larger game– he is being used by his superiors for murkier aims.

Ibrahim finds a Sub-Saharan man, Mamadou, washed up on the beach. While the unlikely pair tries to survive on the small, stony island, they inadvertently trigger a diplomatic incident that crescendos into a regional military crisis. Based on actual events.
