The year is 1954, in Algeria. The war is beginning and village schoolteacher Daru, an ex-French Army soldier, is caught in the crossfire. Born in Algeria but Spanish by lineage, he’s a man out of time and place, perceived as alien by both locals and colonisers alike. So when he reluctantly agrees to escort a dissident to a regional police station to face trial for murder, a series of incidents and revelations force the question of where Daru’s loyalties truly lie.

Based on Albert Camus's short story “The Guest”, writer-director David Oelhoffen’s masterful, breathtakingly-shot drama is a gripping tale of morality and friendship, which bears all the hallmarks of a classic frontier western, yet carries strong contemporary resonances.
