Synopsis

Abandoning city life, Robyn Davidson arrives in Alice Springs in 1977 and declares her ambition to cross the desert to the Indian Ocean to the amusement of the locals. However, after months of camping out and working on a camel farm, people begin to take her seriously. A chance meeting with National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan provides her with the necessary financing for her expedition, under the condition that he be allowed to photograph parts of her journey for the magazine. With only her dog and four unpredictable camels for company, she embarks on an inspiring and life changing journey of self-discovery. Based on a true story.
