Synopsis

Sonita is a determined young Afghan rapper living as a refugee in Iran, who finds her dreams compromised when her family decide to arrange an unwanted marriage for her back in the homeland that she fled. This documentary not only offers an intimate insight into a delicate situation that exposes the differences in women's rights between Iran and Afghanistan, but is also interesting to consider in terms of the role of the filmmaker. When director Rokhsareh Ghaemmaghami finds herself compelled to intervene in Sonita's dilemma, the film takes a radically different turn, with consequences for everybody involved.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
