It's 1960 in the Algerian desert. A unit of elite soldiers are sent on a rescue mission in search of a missing aircraft... but they are not alone. Stormed by Algerian rebels, no one anticipates that another, more deadly threat lies silently in wait. A violent sand storm forces the troops to take refuge in an unchartered village deep in the desert. Taking its inhabitants and the rebels hostage, little do they know that the village is governed by a force far more powerful than any of them can imagine and their invasion has violated their land. Ignoring warnings to leave, as day turns to night, the evil enemy rises and as ranks are decimated one-by-one, they face the longest night of their lives.
