She's known as "The Saharan Ghandi" for her strong convictions and courage. Last month Aminatu Haidar, from Western Sahara, caused a huge diplomatic row between Spain and Morocco. For more than 20-year Aminatu has been fighting for independence for Western Sahara – which was occupied by Morocco after the Spanish and French colonisation ended in Morocco in 1975. She has won numerous international awards for her struggle – including the Robert Kennedy Human Rights Award and the European Parliament's Award for Human Rights – and was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2008.

Last month she went on hunger strike for 32-days in Lanzarote airport when the Moroccan authorities would not allow her to return to Western Sahara – putting her on the front page of newspapers everyday. This film gives extraordinary access to that story and the powerful historical story of one of Africa's most courageous women.
