Synopsis

Marie, an obstinate, adventuresome, young pilot, sets out to track down her lover, who has vanished in the Sahara during a record flight attempt from London to Cape Town. Her unexpected arrival turns life upside down for a remote French Camel Corps troop that is already preoccupied with the stirrings of a Tuareg uprising.

Antoine, a captain in conflict with his superior officers, decides to help Marie with her desperate quest across a grandiose and hostile sea of sand.

In the oppressive heat, their desire to survive slowly binds them in a disturbing and unexpected love story.
