From the controversial novella by Honoré de Balzac comes the story of a young army officer who finds himself stranded in the Sahara desert. Left to his own devices, Augustin Robert (Ben Daniels, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Crown) would surely die...but after stumbling upon mysterious ruins housing a wild leopard, the man and beast form an inextricable bond. The mysteries of Egypt unfold in this mystical and lyrical journey that explores the link between man and beast, an exotic and lustrous experience you’ll never forget.
