The Moroccan desert has recently experienced several large meteor showers. In its arid lands now, rest some celestial pieces. «Fragments from Heaven» tells the story of Mohamed, a nomad in his fifties who lives with his family in a tent in a remote area of the eastern Moroccan desert. In order to change the difficult living conditions of his family, he decides to go in search of meteorite fragments. For him, these objects represent an opportunity to transform their lives forever. It is also the story of Abderrahmane, a scientist who relies on these meteorite fragments to pursue his research on the origins of the Earth and life.
