Arabia, 1916. Theeb (Wolf) lives with his Bedouin tribe in a forgotten corner of the Ottoman Empire. As they have recently lost their father, it falls to Theeb's brother, Hussein, to raise him. Their lives are interrupted by the arrival of a British Army Officer and his guide. Unable to refuse help to his guests for fear of dishonouring his late father's reputation, Hussein agrees to escort the two men to their destination, a water-well on the old pilgrimage route to Mecca. Fearful of losing his brother, Theeb chases after Hussein and embarks on a treacherous journey across the Arabian Desert. Since the outbreak of the First World War, this harsh terrain has become the hunting ground of Ottoman mercenaries, Arab revolutionaries and outcast Bedouin raiders. If Theeb is to survive he must quickly learn about adulthood, trust and betrayal.
