Shahira is a one hour film documenting the true story of Egyptian anthropologist Shahira Fawzy, who discovered a virtually unknown people on the brink of extinction. It is the story of her life among a tribe who live much as they have for the past 5,000 years, in the Eastern Sahara desert, largely untouched by civilization. It is also the story of her successful efforts to help them survive without changing their traditional patterns of life.
