Synopsis Mohammed is a Taliban warrior detained by US soldiers in Afghanistan following the assassination of several soldiers in combat. The army decides to take him to a maximum security area in Europe but, during the journey, the vehicle transporting him suffers a spectacular accident. This circumstance allows Mohammed, injured and with limited movement, to escape through icy forests and mountains, really different from the desert climate to which he was used. Thus, he embarks on a fight for his own survival in which he shall not hesitate to kill if necessary to continue going. On his heels is an officially non-existing army equipped with the most sophisticated and lethal weaponry. During his flight he comes across other persons with different reactions, in some cases, surprising, when the strange invader appears.
