Blood and Ink
When Ali and Kadi meet, it’s hate at first sight. Kadi is the daughter of a librarian in modern-day Timbuktu with plans to become the guardian of an ancient manuscript collection. Ali is the son of shepherds and has been conscripted by the Defenders of Faith, an arm of Al Qaeda. By circumstance, the two teenagers are thrown together. As they get to know more about each other, both let their guards down. Part thriller, part love story, this exciting drama takes place in the midst of true-to-life events in Mali in 2012.
