The extraordinary true story of the woman who crossed a desert and changed the world.

Her story touched the hearts of millions: Waris Dirie's book Desert Flower, which recounts her incredible journey from an African nomad to an international top model, became a worldwide bestseller with more than 11 million copies sold. This is the inspiring story of an extraordinary, proud and brave woman. Director and screenwriter Sherry Hormann (Father's Day) and producer and Oscar winner Peter Herrmann (Nowhere In Africa) have adapted Dirie's autobiography for the screen, a modern fairly tale of dazzling glamour and archaic rituals, full of vitality, emotional depth and enormous compassion.

Top model and actress Liya Kebede shines in the main role alongside an ensemble of brilliant actors including Silver Bear and Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky), Timothy Spall (Harry Potter, Secrets And Lies), Craig Parkinson (Control). Juliet Stevenson (Bend It Like Beckham), Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker, 8 Miles) and Meera Syal (Scoop). Desert Flower is produced by Peter Hermann with Benjamin Hermann and Danny Krausz serving as co-producers. The cinematographer is Ken Kelsch, and the editor is Clara Fabry.
