Abstract

Based on the novella L'Hôte by Albert Camus, two men on opposite sides of the Algerian War find common ground. Daru, a schoolteacher, escorts Mohamed, a peasant accused of the murder of his cousin, through the Atlas Mountains during a harsh winter. They band together to fight off villagers and colonists who have pursued them.
