Desert Flower was adapted from the inter­na­tional best­seller of the same name which has sold more than 10 mil­lion copies world­wide. It traces the improb­a­ble jour­ney of a young Somali woman who treks across the African Desert to find fame and for­tune in the west, and in doing so, dis­cov­ers the strength and voice to bring atten­tion to the dis­may­ing prac­tice of female gen­i­tal muti­la­tion and it’s assault on a woman’s free­dom and dignity.
