Amin, a taciturn young man, stagnates in a small town, in the Algerian Sahara. He stays in an isolated house, where he immerses himself daily in reading his Koran. One morning, he receives, an encrypted message and a photo of a young woman. She joins him a few days later, but the meeting is cold. Yet their presence in this house is no coincidence.
Amine and Nour wait for a message from the North African desert. They finally receive the message to commit a suicide bombing. Algerian director Merzak Allouache’s new film Divine Wind follows the inner conflicts and emotions of two youths who are about to commit a suicide attack as an Islamic jihadist. The film describes a dilemma about the individual in history and clashes with the "collective unconsciousness" of terrorism and the "individuality" of those in their twenties, creating a gap in the biased representation of Islamic terrorism.
