Amazing movie. Really powerful, it shines a light on today's reality, where there is injustice, and how some women are being treated. what happened to Soraya is still happening today, please watch this movie in support for the suffering of those women. Sometimes we do not appreciate where we live or the circumstances, we are born into, this movie helped me realize that i was very lucky. The story is of Soraya, a woman who is stoned to death unjustly by her own family. i would give this movie a 10/10 If you like it please recommend it to all your friends. The actor do a great job to really portray sentiments and feelings of the characters. The producer is the same as in the passion of the Christ and Braveheart.
