Astronauts in the desert of Oman. Or is it Mars? With a cast of Bedouins who were once nomads, ships crossing the desert, two space-mad teenagers and a bunch of newly arrived astronauts, Marte, Omán looks at humans' fascination with the immensity of the universe and raises questions about exploration, colonialism and freedom.
