Synopsis

Stranded in a remote Iranian village, Sahebjam is approached by Zahra, a woman with a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of her death just one day before. Her shocking story exposes the dark power of mob rule, uncivil law, and the utter lack of human rights for women under Islamic law. Her last and only hope for some measure of justice lies in the hands of the journalist who must escape with the story--and his life--so the whole world will know.
