The town of Owls is an isolated residential community situated in the High Atlas Mountains. Left on the side of history, it is in fact a huge prison in which everyone, including guards and residents, are held detainees.

The town of Owls is an isolated residential community situated in the High Atlas Mountains. It is inhabited by families and guards of a secret military prison, which was kept secret for several years, until the end of the eighties of the last century. Guards spend their days back and forth between the secret prison and the village through a bridge, built upon a deep valley that connects the village with the prison. Said is a simple and illiterate man. He spends his life, in rotation with other guards, protecting the gates of the prison. Besides, he helps Al Faqih, the spiritual guardian of the town, to bury the dead detainees. He loves his work and defends it passionately. Furthermore, he considers guarding the military prison as a confirmation of patriotism, and believes that detainees are a threat to the security and peace of the country... Yet, Said's conviction would run into the tragedy of Al Faqih, as he realises that "the town of Owls" is in fact a huge prison in which everyone, including guards and residents, are held detainees.
