Synopsis:

What is the use of beauty? In 1989 an ambitious American architect is summoned to the fictitious Middle Eastern country of Aquaat where the Minister of Culture commissions him to build a thing of beauty; something to remind him of his happiest childhood memories. Architectural plans get sidelined as interest shifts to debates of politics, personal life and pop culture. One begins to wonder who is actually in charge and if beauty is even possible.
