When her friend Reissa begs for her help with her ailing father in Dubai Sina accepts the task and travels – against the will of her colleague and life partner Marco – into the desert. The wild beauty and the archaic lifestyle immediatly appeal to Sina. She soon learns the difference and difficulty of the Bedouin’s life her own limits. Marco and his friend Gerd follow her.
