Looking for stones in the vastness of the Moroccan desert may seem absurd. Unless they are celestial stones, which have the power to change the lives of those who find them. Mohamed, the nomad, and Abderrahmane, the scientist, roam the arid lands in search of meteorites, each with their own reasons.
