A Short Synopsis:
A Dream, a Desert Race, a Secret Life and the Point of No Return.
Shawna is a prairie-born, 30-something, recently divorced, weekend-warrior, film-girl-wanna-be with a 9-5 drafting job and two home-made screenplays in her hand. When a late night TV show launches her solo, single and self-funded out of Calgary and into both films, she lands inside the most dangerous sporting event in the world – the legendary Paris-Dakar Rally. Terrorists step in, reality collapses, and the roadmap home disappears! She’s losing her film back in Vancouver, she’s alone in the Sahara desert, and she’s just crossed the point of no return – the road home and who she meets along the way changes her life forever…
One woman’s harrowing, heartwarming and transformative journey into the unknown and how she found her way back.
