Rural Ireland meets the Middle East when Irish farmer Paddy's only son dies unexpectedly, and his lust for life vanishes. A trip to the ancient city of Petra encourages him to feel a fresh wonder for the world, develop new friendships and an exciting love affair...with himself. How much time can he really spend away from his wife, farm and responsibilities back in Ireland, however?
