About this show

In 1989 an ambitious American architect is summoned to the fictitious Middle Eastern country of Aquaat where the Minister of Culture commissions him to build a thing of beauty; something to remind him of his happiest childhood memories. Architectural plans get sidelined as interest shifts to debates of politics and pop culture. Allegiances shift and the men find themselves caught up in history and warfare, demanding to know "what is the use of beauty?"
