The film is comprised of a variety of film clips taken from the directors' two-year tour of the northern Sahara with a traveling French circus, Cirque O and scenes of North American poet, philosopher and funnyman Robert Lax. Also included are scenes from the lives of the Tuareg nomads who travel in the mountain Middle of the Moment obviously refers to living life in the present, and trusting the moment to provide.
