Salma, a widely known presenter, is filming a poetry show about Tarfa, the pre-Islamic poet. With a sand storm disrupting the episode shoot and Salma’s son being lost for days, the presenter remains calm. Perhaps too calm, her mind distantly quiet, the loud crew then drives off forgetting her at the location. On her phone, busy talking, Salma is walking and something far from reality is about to occur.
