Summary
The Rub' al Khalii, or Empty Quarter, is the immense sand desert in Southern Arabia. This film follows a Bedouin family on their winter migration into this desolate landscape and examines the desert animals and plants. Camels, gazelle, oryx, desert shrimp, plants, and insects have all adapted to cope with a life of extreme heat and no water. The wildlife at the ancient al-Hasa oasis offers a glimpse at life forms few even know exist. The impacts of the modern age on the ecology of the central Arabian deserts are also discussed?
