A compelling documentary about the Jihadist takeover of Northern Mali and its deadly impact on the country's musicians. In August 2012, Jihadists banned music from Northern Mali. Radio stations were destroyed, instruments burned and musicians faced torture, even death. Overnight, they were forced into hiding or exile. This film follows Mali's musicians as they fight to keep music alive in their country. It captures life over the borders at refugee camps where money and hope are scarce, follows perilous journeys home to war ravaged cities, and for one band, their path to international stardom.
