About Nearby Sky
Nearby Sky tells the story of Fatima Alhameli, the first Emirati Female camel owner to personally enter her Camel into the Camel Beauty Pageants and take part in camel auctions in the UAE. Regardless of all the difficulties and challenges she encountered while trying to prove herself in one of the most male dominant domains, Fatima's wish to win in a race or a beauty pageant contest remains the only compensation to overcome her failures.
