The Stoning of Soraya M.

This film, based on a true story, tells the tale of a woman who is unjustly accused of adultery and stoned to death. Her aunt courageously tries to call the world's attention to this hidden act of injustice.

Stoning for adultery is still practiced in many parts of the world. It is incredibly important to go see this film, in order to better understand the horrific effects of Sharia law and to stand up for women like Soraya worldwide.
