Synopsis

Stranded in the heat of a barren African desert, eleven bus passengers shelter in the remnants of an abandoned town.
As rescue grows more remote by the day and anxiety deepens, an idea emerges: why not stage a play.
However the choice of King Lear only manages to plunge this disparate group of travellers into turmoil as they struggle to overcome both nature's wrath and their own mortality.
In the heat of the sun emotional and sexual tensions surge around the play's production, and they are forced to confront their most raw emotions.
With all inhibitions stripped away, their individual fight for survival makes them perform the ultimate role in front of each other - their own lives.
