Abstract / Summary
A remote petrol station lying fallow on the periphery of an unnamed country in the Arabian Gulf provides the background for a familial standoff in which the crimes, secrets, and broken loves of one generation make violent claims on the lives of the next. In this iconic setting, the brooding tensions between two half brothers are set alight by the arrival of a beautiful and dangerous woman on the run from the grips of a vicious civil war. Identity, ambition and betrayal play out in the contexts of war, oil and global migrancy.
