Storyline

On the night of June 28th, 2011, Swedish journalists Martin Schibbye and Johan Persson took a significant risk by illegally crossing from Somalia into Ethiopia. Their aim was to investigate the impact of the ruthless pursuit of oil on the population of the secluded and conflict-ridden Ogaden region. Just five days later, they found themselves wounded in the desert, having been shot and captured by the Ethiopian army.
