This film was produced for the opening event of the World Diabetes Congress 2011 in Dubai.
It tells the story of a diabetic girl living in the United Arab Emirates.
We wanted the film to be authentic so there was no question of using an actor/presenter who was not diabetic.
The actor also needed to be an Emirati.
Finding a professional diabetic Emirati actor proved challenging!
After extensive casting sessions with non-professional boys and girls we found 13 year old Buthaina and she did an amazing job!
