Alan Clay, a field rep for a Boston tech company sent to Saudi Arabia to land a deal to sell IT systems to the king’s massive pet project: a city being built in the middle of the desert. Clay struggles with jet lag, the lack of wi-fi, his bosses’ impatience, his ex-wife’s nagging over their daughter’s tuition, the Saudis’ casual relationship with time, and a cyst growing on his back. He gets advice from a local driver, Yousef (Alexander Black), and some surreptitious alcohol from a Danish acquaintance (Sidse Babett Knudsen) — but makes an unexpected connection with an Arabic doctor (Sarita Choudhury).
