In 1916, on the eve of the Arab revolt, orphaned brothers Hussein and Theeb (Arabic for wolf) are visited in the night by a mysterious British officer.
Adhering to the strict code of Bedouin honour, the two boys find themselves assisting the man on a treacherous journey across the desert. Along the way, they will encounter Arab revolutionaries, Ottoman mercenaries and bloodthirsty raiders.
British-born writer-director Naji Abu Nowar announces himself as a major new talent with his feature debut, a stunningly shot journey into the unforgiving heart of the desert, for which he spent a year living among a real Bedouin tribe.
Nominated for the Sutherland Award in the First Feature Competition at the BFI London Film Festival 2014.
