Casablanca, spring of 1961. Edoardo (43) signs up for a mission to rescue a mysterious wrecked ship on the shores of the Atlantic. Meanwhile a sacred caravan of Tuareg down in the Sahara starts its long journey to reach the exact same destination. The ship named Talassim disappeared from the map together with its crew in a dangerous area ruled by local tribes and the Moroccan army; in a time when the former colonies are being invaded by treasure hunters, carpetbaggers, and oil-seekers from all over the world, the locals have little trust in strangers. It is not only the promise of a great adventure that attracts Edoardo, he wants to escape the pain of losing his wife in a dirty business affair of the local bosses. His odyssey starts with crossing the Sahara accompanied by his old friend Aziz until they reach their destination, Cape Juby, a small Spanish fort town of the South. The ship is veiled in secrets and rumors of a cursed cargo. Edoardo gets close to reveal its hidden truth, which leads to the ancient secrets of Africa, whereas the price is enormous: one has to sacrifice his life, the other one has to face his haunted past. This journey will change the lives of all who got involved forever.
