Nathalie Morin is a French Canadian born citizen who has been held against her will in Saudi Arabia by her partner, Saeed Al Shahrani, and the Saudi Arabian government since 2005. She claims that she is physically and psychologically mistreated with her four children. She has stated that she "does not have any friend[s]" in Saudi Arabia and is shunned because of her foreign roots.

She has become famous in Quebec. Journalists follow her misfortunes regularly. In 2012, the Canadian and Saudi Arabian governments came close to a deal, but it has failed.

A Saudi Arabian writer and political activist, Wajeha al-Huwaider, has tried to help her, but without any success so far.
