Based on Freidoune Sahebjam’s acclaimed international best-seller, Academy Award® nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (“House of Sand and Fog”) stars in the heroic role of Zahra, an Iranian woman with a burning secret. When a journalist (Jim Caviezel, “The Passion Of The Christ” ) is stranded in her remote village, she takes a bold chance to reveal a truth that the villagers will stop at nothing to keep hidden. And so unfolds the remarkable story of Soraya, a woman whose cruel husband conspires against her by trumping up charges of infidelity, which carry a severe and unimaginable penalty. Based on a true story, this powerful tale of persecution becomes both a daring act of witness and a compelling parable about mob rule.
