Storyline

Based on ancient middle eastern fairy tales written thousands of years ago, and passed down from generation to generation. Imad's beautiful true love (Amina) is snatched in the middle of the night right from her dream in which Imad shared with her, by an all mighty Djinn (evil Genie). Imad, only empowered by the pure energy of love and passion for her, finds himself having to cross 'the three valleys of the black desert', which are represented as the 'three vises of man' (Fear, Greed, and Lust) which come at him in different forms and are represented as both external and internal demons. Guided only by a fortuneteller and an angel, Imad must overcome these vises, in order to prove the purity of his soul and reach the 'Tree of Life'. No man has been able to achieve this, but he must, to save what matters most, his true love Amina from the supernatural Djinn. Written by SS

Interesting film ..unique storyline!
16 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I Agree the story was cool...some intense scenes! I thought it was unique and interesting, especially from the back ground of this film. Being a middle eastern story and all. The lead guy "Imad" looks like the guy from the mummy. Lots of cool desert scenes, loved the fortuneteller, and the hookah scene.

The film is not a typical mindless film, it is very indie, you have to watch it a few times to get the weird hidden meanings, my buddies thought the same. The ending was cool, i just saw this on cable movies on-demand, I looked up the film maker, was his first film.,..very cool!

Will look forward to more.
