Looking out the window of an airplane as it flies over the desert, a scene unfolds on the ground. It's a strange feeling to slowly release the emotional attachment to a very familiar place while still observing events on the ground and pondering their meaning. The title refers to the final scene of David Lean's "Lawrence of Arabia" where a friendly driver innocently asks this question while driving him to the port to leave Arabia forever, causing a mute look of a variety of very mixed emotions on Peter O'Toole's face.
