"A sumptuous visual exploration" — Sight & Sound
At the edge of a city growing from the desert, a man plays alone on a golf course. Another, sleepless, sends a letter from a labour camp to his wife in Kenya. A sand storm hits a construction site, and the locals hold a strange celebration. The city of Dubai and its surrounding desert here become a set for a visual exploration of displacement, and the longings and desires of their inhabitants.
