A bedouin story of brotherhood and betrayal, set in Wadi Rum 1916. Theeb [Wolf] lives with his Bedouin
tribe in a forgotten corner of the Ottoman Empire. Having recently lost his father, it falls to Theeb’s
brother, Hussein, to raise him. Hussein tries to teach Theeb the Bedouin way of life, but the young boy is
more interested in mischief than mentorship. Their lives are interrupted with the arrival of a British
Army Officer and his Guide on a mysterious mission. Unable to refuse help to his guests for fear of
dishonouring his late father’s reputation, Hussein agrees to escort the pair to their destination, a
water-well on the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. Fearful of losing his brother, Theeb chases after
Hussein and embarks on a treacherous journey across the Arabian Desert. Since the outbreak of the First
World War, this harsh terrain has become the hunting ground of Ottoman mercenaries, Arab
revolutionaries and outcast Bedouin raiders. If Theeb is to survive he must quickly learn about
adulthood, trust and betrayal. He must live up to the name his Father gave him
