Director: Elena Molina

The Saharawi women face the thirst of the hamada, the curse of the desert, every day. They've built their refuge in a land where no one could survive before. For more than forty years they've been holding out and taking care of their people there. They ensure every drop of water is distributed according to the needs of each family... and they wait. But there is an even more terrible thirst in their throats, for which they find no relief.

This film is part of a combined programme with: Songs of our soil. Both are powerful films, showing the lives of women in India, Telangana and in the Sahara desert.
