The Moroccan desert is famous for its recurring meteorite falls. „Fragments from Heaven” tells the story of Mohamed and Abderrahmane.

The Moroccan desert is famous for its recurring meteorite falls. „Fragments from Heaven tells” the story of Mohamed, a nomad who lives with his family in a tent in a remote area of the desert. In order to change his family’s hard living conditions, he decides to go in search of meteorites. It is the story of Abderrahmane as well, a scientist who relies on this meteor debris to pursue his research on the origins of the Earth and life.  Both of them don’t imagine that this quest will take them far beyond simple hunting. Behind those objects, lie the fragments of human complexity.
