“Now it’s up to the young people to offer Libya what we couldn’t.”

When everyone in uniform is called to Tripoli to quell the insurgency against Muammar Gaddafi, Mahmoud, a petty clerk at a small Libyan police station, is entrusted with transporting a political prisoner to a nearby jail. It’s a simple assignment, but with his compassion warring with direct orders, Mahmoud finds himself questioning which laws to uphold.
