Theeb (meaning “wolf”), is the adorable youngest son of the Sheikh of a Bedouin tribe in the Arabian Desert. But Theeb is still a “pup” – playing mischievous boyhood games with his protective older brother Hussein. It’s 1916, however, and in WWI era Arabia, great forces of political change are mobilizing that will soon radically change Theeb’s majestic and dangerous world.

When Hussein leaves the tribe to escort a visiting British solider on a treacherous journey to a far-away desert wellspring, Theeb secretly tags along on his trusty burro. But when the party hits a crossroads, Theeb must find the resources within himself to become a true “wolf”, and learn to run with a much larger pack, as the rumblings of the Great Arab Revolt begin.
