Yellow Asphalt

A child is run over by a truck on a deserted highway. A German woman desperately tries to flee her husband and tribe. These are two of the short stories that venture amongst the Bedouin tribe of the Judeab desert. The third is what the film Before the Rains is based on and the main reason for me to pick this film. The stories are almost identical. All you need to do is replace the Kerala tribals with the Bedouin and the Brits with the Jews. But the difference is night and day.
