Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Mia Wasikowska stars as writer Robyn Davidson in this dramatic account of Davidson's arduous 1700-mile trek across the Australian desert. With only four camels and a loyal canine to keep her company on the journey from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean, Davidson discovers the value of solitude while being reminded of how it feels to be truly connected with the world. In order to fund her epic adventure, Davidson reluctantly allows prolific National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) to capture it on film. Although at first Davidson's desire for solitude finds the disparate pair at odds, over time their adversarial relationship evolves into an abiding friendship.
