Embark on a fascinating journey of music's powerful impact on society through a series of documentaries.
Sonita is an 18-year-old female, an undocumented Afghan illegal immigrant living in the poor suburbs of Tehran. She is a feisty, spirited, young woman who fights to live the way she wants, as an artist, singer, and musician in spite of all of the obstacles she confronts in Iran and her conservative patriarchal family. Her family’s plan for her – strongly spearheaded by her mother – to sell her to a new family as a bride for US$9,000.00 is a bleak contrast to Sonita’s own goal.
