Plot Summary:

Women talk about relationships, men talk about computers. What does it take to get a dozen regular guys, ages 32–70, from various backgrounds (a doctor, engineer, human resources consultant, probation officer, cook), to reveal their emotions? "Desert Wind" takes them on a 12-day trek in the Tunisian desert, where a psychologist encourages them to rethink their lives and their male identity, what they like and don’t like about their bodies to recollections of childhood and marriage traumas. Against the dramatic, ascetic beauty of golden sand dunes and brilliant skies, the men reveal secrets even they didn't know they had.
