When you’re stuck on a train going through the desert in the Middle East, things can get heated. Especially for three prickly siblings. Oldest sister Shadi is depressed, youngest sibling Cameron is in transition, and Ani—with a brand new nose—is caught in the middle. Questions of identity, love, gender and body hair are raised. Razors drawn.
