The Moroccan desert is famous for its recurring meteorite falls. Fragments from Heaven tells the story of Mohamed, a nomad who lives with his family in a tent in a remote area of the desert. In order to change his family’s hard living conditions, he decides to go in search of meteorites. It is the story of Abderrahmane as well, a scientist who relies on this meteor debris to pursue his research on the origins of the Earth and life. Both of them comb through the arid lands looking for meteorites, each with its own powers.
