It is a film about a girl who longs to own a bike in a country where until recently women could not even ride a bike in public.
The Duchess of Cornwall visited Saudi Arabia's first university for women, where women are paid to study without much prospect of a job.
Our perceptions of Saudi Arabia are hardly flattering, particularly when it comes to the treatment of women. But change is afoot.
Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has given a rare interview to ITV News International Correspondent John Irvine.
The Saudi prince speaks of his hopes for President Obama's second term and his predictions for the future of Syria:
Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has told ITV News that he would like to see further reform across the Middle East:
I’d like all those Arab countries who did not have an instability or revolution to wake up and immediately to reform and change before this tide reaches them
When asked if this included Saudi Arabia the prince replied: “All countries – no country is immune. Everyone who thinks he is immune, as you say in English, ‘he is talking rubbish’”.
Speaking to ITV News, Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal has predicted that Syrian president Bashar Assad will not flee Syria, and that the conflict with drag on for years.

Selling arms to countries like Saudi Arabia and UAE should only be considered if there are absolutely watertight guarantees over them not being used to commit human rights violations.
Saudi Arabia has been the recipient of record-breaking arms deals involving the UK, yet these have been highly secretive and there’s been little or no follow-up over how the weaponry was used ...
In the past a large Saudi chequebook has apparently meant it could purchase weapons as well as silence over its own dreadful human rights record.
It’s time for David Cameron to end this deeply disturbing trade-off.
Saudi state television said 22 people have died and more than 110 people have been wounded in the explosion of a fuel tanker in the capital Riyadh.
