Somewhere in the endless steppes of Central Asia lies a treasure. One man holds the key to it, a fragment of an ancient map. But in his restless quest, Charles isn’t looking for fame or glory. He’s looking for a way to heal his wounded soul. Ulzhan felt it the first time she laid eyes on him.

Our take

With a roving desire to find stories to tell around the world, Volker Schlöndorff has traveled in our triple feature from New York to the coast of France—and now to the steppes of Kazakhstan for a gorgeously sweeping tale written by Jean-Claude Carrière, the great collaborator of Buñuel and Godard.
