British aid worker Hana (Andrea Riseborough) has been working in a war trauma unit along the border between Jordan and Syria, and returns to the ancient city of Luxor, where she arrives at the storied Winter Palace Hotel for a few days of rest. Traumatized by the horrors she's witnessed, she bumps into former boyfriend Sultan (Karim Saleh) by chance.
An archeologist, Sultan takes her to his latest dig in the Valley of the Kings to help take her mind off of things. Her next assignment is in Yemen, but she feels broken, unable to handle another war zone. Haunted by the familiar place and unable to access all of her memories of Luxor, she struggles to reconcile her past choices with the uncertainty of the present.
