Abused by her mother, raped by her father, she grows up poor, angry, illiterate, fat, unloved and generally unnoticed. The Stoning of Soraya M. starts with the viewer stranded in a remote Iranian village, where Sahebjam is approached by Zahra, a woman with a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of her death the day before. Her story attempts to expose what it perceives as the inhumanity of Sharia Law.
