Born in Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Al Turki has recently caused a frenzy of interest in the town he now calls home - Hollywood. Adored by his LA counterparts, Mohammed has very quickly positioned himself as one of Tinsel town's 'one to watch', found and papped, working and socialising with many of the industry's finest. Fashion and music royalty have also taken a liking to the fascinating young man from Saudi Arabia; his undeniable charm and rise in profile has not only presented a shining talent so impressively representing the Middle East region, but also, successfully breaking barriers between ''East and West''.

The film also received much talked about national/international media recognition, and praise.
