Based on: The novel 'Arab' by Hans Ruesch
Story: Antonio Banderas and Mark Strong star as the leaders of two warring Arab states in this drama from French writer-director Jean-Jacques Annaud. In negotiations over the ownership of The Yellow Belt, the strip of sand that divides their territories, Nesib, Emir of Hobeika (Banderas), and Amar, Sultan of Salmaah (Strong), agree to leave the land unclaimed. To avoid future conflict, Nesib adopts Amar's two sons, Saleeh (Akin Gazi) and Auda (Tahar Rahim), taking them to his kingdom where they will grow up. Years later a Texan oil tycoon (Corey Johnson) visits Narib and informs him that there is oil in The Yellow Belt that could make his state rich. With his older brother having been killed in an attempt to get back to his father's land, Auda, who is in love with Nasib's daughter (Freida Pinto), is given the difficult task of keeping the peace between Hobeika and Salmaah.
