New Movie - The Stoning of Soraya M.

The Stoning of Soraya M

There is a new movie opening up this June, 2000 from the producers or The Passion of the Christ and starring Jim Caviezel. It is based on the international best-selling book by French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam.
This film is based on a true story. 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 two weeks before. Her story exposes the dark power of mob rule, uncivil law, and the lack of rights for women. Her last and only hope for justice lies in the hands of the journalist who must escape with the story - and his life - in order to communicate the violence to the world.

Wow! this sounds like powerful stuff. I find it so hard to accept that this is still happening two thousand years on but it is so important to make the truth known- only then can we act.

Squelly, I am hearing a lot of things that I can't believe is happening.
