Synopsis

In a desert where oil meets sand, a woman wakes at the top of a tangerine-hued dune to rise and make gestures in the sunlight, as though inspiring the land about her to develop, grow and become all it can be. A poetic reflection of Qatar’s becoming a sophisticated nation of wealth and influence while retaining its centuries-old traditions.
