The movie is divided into two parts and part one starts with the burial of Lawrence, one of the most notable men from the time of World War I to 1935. The movie then takes us back to the time of the First World War, where Lawrence is sent to Arabia to watch over Prince Faisal’s deals and also act as a liaison for between the British and the Arabs in their deal to fight over the Turks.
During Lawrence’s journey, his bodyguard is killed for drinking from Sherif Ali’s well without permission. Later, Lawrence meets Colonel Brighton, who emphasizes that he must keep silent as he carries out whatever brought him. But because of Lawrence’s nature, he answers whatever he is asked and goes beyond his limits.
British perform their businesses effectively. After a long journey in the desert in which Lawrence saves Gasim, one of Ali’s men, he is recognised and given Arabs attires. Another situation that almost sabotages Lawrence’s plans comes along, only to find that Gasim is behind it. Lawrence kills Gasim and this earns him more recognition and power
