Since the Gulf War in 1990, Wadi Rum, Jordan's expansive national park has largely been forgotten by the climbing community, though it is still popular with Hollywood. With the re-emergence of peace, Eliav (Eli) Nissan desires to show the world the potential for adventure tourism in this part of the Middle East. Director Henna Taylor documents the story of two Israeli climbers charting a new route on a mountain in Jordan’s Wadi Rum national park, along with boulder climber Madaleine Sorki, and supported by a local Bedouin guide, Mohammad Hussein.
