After a draining period spent working at a war trauma unit on the Jordanian-Syrian border, British doctor Hana (Riseborough) seeks rest and retreat. She embarks on a nostalgic trip to Luxor in Egypt, the place where she spent her early twenties and the home of her former lover, Sultan, a handsome archaeologist.
