"I’m starting to believe that people can have more than one soulmate in their life."
– Gordon

Eye on Juliet


A love story through the eye of a spider drone. Across the landscape of a Middle Eastern desert and an oil pipeline appears a strange spider-like robot that seems to be scoping the horizon. At the other end of the world, in America, drone operator and pipeline guardian Gordon (Joe Cole) surveys the desolated landscapes on his screens. Having lost his way in a world he no longer comprehends, he becomes fascinated by Ayusha (Lina El Arabi), a young woman promised to an older man she doesn’t love. Despite the distance, their mutual fear and their imperfect interaction, Gordon will do everything in his power to help Ayusha escape her fate, falling for her in the process.
