The tents in the arid landscape evoke the Bedouin community of the Arabian Peninsula.
The man on the left, disguised as Habbaza, has just been badly beaten by Habbaza’s husband. He is the Arab man who has temporarily taken the woman’s place while she visits with her lover. Upon entering the tent to heal her sister’s wounds, Habbaza’s sister quickly discovers the ruse and begins an affair of her own.
