Warring Arab tribal leaders reach an uneasy peace declaring the arid border of their poor kingdoms No Man’s Land, and Amar (Strong) gives his sons to Nesib (Banderas) as hostages/wards. Years later a Texan oil man persuades Nesib to exploit the riches beneath the forbidden zone, igniting a conflict of ideology, religion and love.
Ambitious but very tedious and talkatively hackneyed, redeemed just a smidge by the money shots of a swarm of extras on horseback sweeping across the sands.
