This spectacular account of a young man making his way through the desert is one of the first Saudi films to have been shot at NEOM, the new development in the northwest of the kingdom. Director Moe Alatawi tells the story of Snam, a 23-year-old tobacco merchant who breaks away from his trading convoy in order to get home quickly to his village, where his wife is about to have their first child. Now traveling alone, he's ambushed by thieves who leave him for dead. His journey has become a quest to survive, with the added threat of a wolf dogging his footsteps. Tormented by his memories, he struggles to hold on to his sanity in this vast, lonely, but also inspiring wilderness.
