Synopsis: The legend of an ancient and forgotten civilization lies buried under a large expanse of dunes. For more than a century, several travelers have reached this remote and desolate territory looking for traces of ancient inhabitants, ruins of a city, or perhaps a sort of lost utopia. Unaware of these myths and the romantic delusions of archaeologists and adventurers, a few men, barely visible among the dunes, inhabit today in solitude that place facing the sea.
