Imagine borderless desert and a long road crossing it. There in a little shack awaits Malika - owner of the café – serving coffee, omelet or cigarettes. Lonely woman in the midst of Algerian Sahara desert interacts with everyone who passes through – truck drivers, vagabonds or European woman travelling with motorbike. Director captures various conversations, slowly revealing Malika's story. It would seem that time doesn't exist here, but eventually changes reach the no man's land.

"Through her brave and daring gaze, the wonderful main character Malika shows the reality of the distant land and allows us to feel the pulse of Algerian society and its regime. It seems that Malika's eyes are already accustomed to the never-changing sandy landscape, allowing her to have a broader look." (Mantė Valiūnaitė)
