About this item

When at the age of 13, Waris Dirie discovers that her father has decided to marry her off as the fourth wife to a considerably older man, the young girl realizes that she has no choice but to flee. In the middle of the night, she steals away from the desert camp of her nomadic family and makes her way through the rocky Somali desert to Mogadishu where she finds her aunt and grandmother in the chaotic bustle of the Somali capital. Her relatives manage to find her a job as a maidservant with distant relatives in the Somali embassy in London. There, she lives for several years completely cut off from the outside world, as if in a jail. When civil war breaks out in Somalia and the Somali embassy is closed down, Waris goes into hiding in the big city. During this time she meets the lively and clever sails assistant Marily who becomes her most trusted friend. One day while working as a cleaning woman in a fast-food restaurant, Waris attracts the attention of famous fashion photographer Terry Donaldson, and after some initial hesitation, agrees to let him take pictures of her. From that moment on, it's as if a fairy tale has come true: Donaldson opens the doors of the fashion world to Waris, and she ultimately becomes a well-known international model. Both the jet set and the press love this girl from a nomadic family. However, after years of success, Waris refused to repeat her Cinderella story during an interview to Marie Claire magazine. Instead she choosed to tell the story of the day that changed her life forever: the day of her circumcision in the Somali desert at the tender age of five.

Extended interviews with Liya Kebede, Theatrical trailer.
