Socotra: The Island of Djinns

The film is the story of a journey across the island of Socotra in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of Yemen. Ahmed Afrar, his companions and three cameleers with their animals trek to the mountains before the rainy season. During the trip, the Socotrians tell stories by the fire. During the night, the conversation turns to legends of djinns and monstrous snakes that dwell in the cavernous interior of the island.
