Chasing the Desert Documentary & The Dakar Rally
One woman is launched into a world far more life changing than she ever could have scripted when terrorist actions in Africa force the historic cancelation of the 2008 Dakar Rally. Her ‘dream film gig’ turned ‘waking nightmare’ detours her onto a 5 year journey home that unfolds into a once-in-a-lifetime, no regrets, off the grid adventure.
The racers and filmmaker try to pull everything together in Hungary and Romania with one last ditch effort to prove they have what it takes to capture the win in the fast approaching 2009 Dakar Rally.
