Hind, a young bedouin woman, spends weeks alone while her husband is away hunting. Their tent is her entire world, yet her dreams and thoughts carry her miles away, over the desert, under the sea, to the fast-changing urban landscape of Doha. Past and future, tradition and innovation, reality and dreams smoothly blend in the evocative monologue of a woman who might be living in a confined space, but whose sense and sensibility are larger than life.
