Abu Haraz is a small village in the middle of the desert in North Sudan.  The construction of a huge dam on the Nile has interfered with the age-old, natural rhythm of the lives of its residents.  The film makers have spent several years with them, observing their vain attempts to turn back fate and stop the construction of the dam in order to continue their way of life.  Struggle, loss, pain, sacrifice, perseverance, and dedication to their natural lifestyle are all evident in this film.
