Timbuktu centers around the life of a Kidane and Satima. Their life changes dramatically when Timbuktu comes under Islamic extremists' control. Everything soon turns sour. Music, cigarettes, and all other kinds of entertainement are soon banned. The locals at first react strongly, but their protests are soon quashed at the sight of public punishment resulting from their resistance, and people gradually turn silent and accept the ugly regulations.
