Archeologist Laïla Nehmé is leading a expedition in the deserts of Saudi Arabia and Jordan to map out the exact incense trade road.
This unprecedented investigation, in the form of a road movie, explores the civilization of the Nabateans, the masters of the desert. Who were they? How did they manage to build such a powerful kingdom? What was their religion, their beliefs? How did they live?
Thanks to the latest discoveries made in Hegra and Petra, the capital of the kingdom, we gain a better understanding of this still very mysterious people.
