"Based on the 1994 book of the same name by the late French-Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam, which was banned in Iran, The stoning of Soraya M introduces us to Zahra, a courageous Iranian woman with a terrible secret. When a journalist is temporarily stranded in her village, Zahra risks her life to relate the shocking events that led to the 'legalized' murder of her niece, Soraya, falsely accused of adultery by a husband who wished to be rid of her in order to marry a 14 year-old girl. The penalty for such a crime is death by stoning - a barbaric practice condoned by Sharia law, that still prevails in some parts of the world."

Only 70 days into his term, Reagan takes a bullet between the heart and lung and is forced into the hospital. Meanwhile, with Vice President Bush in transit, Secretary of State Alexander Haig (Richard Dreyfus) takes control at the White House only to find himself close to nuclear conflict with the Soviet Union. This thought-provoking film, which originally aired on the Showtime network, utilizes various sources to provide a portrait of an infamous day in American history which was fraught with far more chaos than the public even knew"--Yahoo

La historia transcurre en 1986, justo cuando el imán Jomeini está a punto de asumir el poder en Irán. Cuando el periodista francés Freidoune Sahebjam (Jim Caviezel) viaja a un pequeño pueblo del suroeste, gracias a una avería de su automóvil, llega a una aldea, donde la joven Zahra (Shohreh Aghdashloo), le revela algo que los habitantes de la aldea tratan de ocultar al mundo: la verdadera historia de una mujer llamada Soraya M (Mozhan Marnò), una dulce y alegre joven, que es víctima de una terrible conspiración capitaneada por su marido, que la acusa de adulterio. Según el severo código de leyes islámico (la Sharia), el adulterio es un crimen que debe ser castigado con la lapidación. Moviéndose a través de un campo minado de intrigas, mentiras y engaños, Soraya, con la ayuda de Zahra, tratará en vano de demostrar su inocencia.

Handlingen, som er basert på en utrolig, sann historie, blir den sterke, gripende fortellingen om en landsbys forfølgelse av en uskyldig kvinne - et vågalt vitnesbyrd og en fengslende skildring om mobbens brutale makt. Når journalisten Freidoune befinner seg strandet i Zahras avsidesliggende landsby, tar hun en modig sjanse ved å avsløre det landsbyens beboere vil gjøre alt for å holde skjult. Slik begynner den bemerkelsesverdige skildringen om Soraya M., en snill, modig kvinne hvis dårlige ekteskap leder hennes onde, skilsmissesøkende ektemann til å konspirere mot henne. Han kommer opp med beskyldninger om utroskap som tilsvarer en utenkelig straff. Midt i et stort minefelt av komplotter, løgner og bedrag, vil Soraya og Zahra prøve å bevise Sorayas uskyldighet i et rettsystem som samler seg mot henne. Men når alt annet feiler, vil Zahra risikere alt ved å bruke det eneste våpenet hun har igjen - den uredde, pasjonerte stemmen som kan fortelle Sorayas historie til en sjokkert verden. Filmen fikk terningkast 3-5
