"Point Zero" is a contemplative comic book that follows the journey of a lone explorer criss-crossing the Sahara in search of black locusts that he believes to be the cause of an upcoming cataclysm. He tries to trace the source of the locusts and gradually realises that he is facing the apocalypse. Imashek, the spirit of the desert, tries to convince him to give up. "Everything has an end. But the explorer is slow to understand that every end gives rise to another beginning.
