The story of a Zanzibari girl from a conservative Islamic family who wears a Hijab, but dreams of being a supermodel. Ironically the first picture ever taken of her was taken by a tourist on the streets of Zanzibar as her family was so poor and conservative that her parents didn’t ever take her picture. When she sees herself in a picture for the first time she dreams of doing it for the rest of her life and aspires to be a model one day.
I definitely want to see this movie because of it's compelling story line that most of us know to well, the idea of leaving home to stake out your claim in a foreign land. For me, I couldn't wait to live overseas and many models from the USA, the Caribbean, South America, Central America, Asia and Africa wanted to go to the center of the fashion world: Europe.
The Models who have made a name for themselves whose lives possibly mirror this movie.
