This award-winning documentary portrays the story of world-renowned dancer-choreographer Akram Khan during his performance in Abu Dhabi. It is a cultural dialogue between the Middle East and the rest of the world set in a futuristic city surrounded by desert – a seemingly conflicted and metaphysically rich environment.
