Academy Award® nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog) stars in the heroic role of Zahra, an Iranian woman with a burning secret.

But when all else fails, Zahra will risk everything to use the sole weapon she has left – the fearless, passionate voice that can share Soraya’s story with a shocked world.
