Algeria, 1954. Two very different men thrown together by a world in turmoil are forced to flee across the Atlas mountains. Daru, the reclusive teacher, has to escort Mohamed, a villager accused of murder.
Balducci claims Mohamed killed his cousin with a billhook. Billhooks bear a resemblance to the smaller, hooked knives used to cut linoleum. In Eastern Promises (2007), Viggo Mortensen's infamous naked fight scene featured villains bearing linoleum knives.
