This strikingly sparse novel is based on real events and testimonies from a former inmate at Tazmamart Prison, a concentration camp in the desert where King Hassan II of Morocco detained political dissidents. In 1991, several prisoners were released from their cramped underground cells after decades of confinement. It is a story of the strength of the human will to survive and endure.
