- Summary: The film story covers the arrival of immigrant Circassians to Ottoman Transjordan in the year 1900. Dostoyevsky said 'Beauty will save the world'... and this film is based on such a perception. The film shows the different aspects of two cultures, the Bedouin and the Circassian, who were thrown together unwillingly by historical providence, creating a perfect recipe for controversy and violence but saved by the miraculous powers of innocent, unexpected love. This is a story of two young souls who fall passionately in love and by so doing create the opportunity for conflict and bloodshed... as well as for potential harmony and peaceful coexistence; the quintessence of drama, when the pendulum could swing in either direction.

40Mr. Quandour's utopian vision may seem improbable - that fairy tale quality again - but his odd, guileless, folkloric movie doesn't feel cloying so much as something from a different world.
