When Ingrid lands in the Saudi capital of Riyadh on a hot summer night in the early 1990's, she has no idea her life will take an unexpected turn. From the palace of HRH Princess Jowhara, where she lives and works, she discovers an exotic country, the gorgeous yet unforgiving desert of the Rub al Khali and has an encounter with the feared religious police. But she also meets wonderful, generous and fascinating women and soon embarks on a new adventure to Norway and the Arctic with her new friend, Mikio, an older Japanese professor and amateur photographer. Follow them as they discover each other on their trip to Norway where their friendship beyond borders and age will grow.
