Lion of the Desert
The year is 1929 and dictator Benito Mussolini is still faced with the 20-year long war waged by Bedouin patriots to combat Italian colonization in Africa. Mussolini appoints General Rodolfo Graziani governor of Libya, confident that he can crush the rebellion and restore the glories of the Imperial Rome.
Inspirational in the Bedouin resistance toward the oppressors is the leadership of one man - Omar Mukhtar. A teacher by profession, guerrilla by obligation, Mukhtar has committed himself to a war that cannot be won in his lifetime.
