A summer house will adorn the garden of the Culture Minister of Aqaat, designed by American architect Andrew Hackett. If he should live so long. The Culture Minister takes a while to make up his mind and likes nothing better than to skirmish over the renderings -- and his favorite Hollywood movies. Will the house be built before the two men, like their countries, change loyalties and find themselves caught up in history? In a Garden is a cat and mouse game set against a global background, cultures clash and world views are turned upside down.
