Their quest for adventure became a prayer for survival.

"Stunning" (The Village Voice), "stylish" (Los Angeles Times) and "potent" (Variety), this exquisitely crafted film charts the tale of ten hapless tourists lost in the heart of the African desert. Compelling performances from a "strong international cast" (The Hollywood Reporter) highlight this "original, epic vision [that] reacquaints us with the mystery of what it is to be human" (Film Quarterly)!

When their bus breaks down in the middle of the desert, a mismatched group of travelers meets the absurdity of their situation head on... by staging an impromptu production of King Lear. But as tempers flare, passions ignite, and their hopes of rescue dwindle, they soon begin to realize that in the heart of the African wilderness, the only thing more fearsome than Mother Nature... is human nature.
