An acacia tree lost in the wasteland. Two men are sitting in its shadow. One of them, an old Bedouin, is telling his European visitor the most extraordinary story ever to happen in the desert. This is a story about friendship and hate, hope and despair, love and death; a tale about the grandiose dream of a man who decided that nothing is impossible. In the middle of nowhere, deep within the moaning wind and void of the desert, the tales of the old Bedouin Meddur will revive the quest of Waterman. This most desperate man on earth carries within himself a foolish hope to impose his will upon the stormy winds of the Tenere, the hottest place on earth. Waterman's journey is an odyssey beyond the limits of life and civilization, and it is the search of every human soul longing for eternity. Waterman's quest for an impossible oasis will draw the reader toward finding a way to their own soul.
