Description

Winner of multiple film festival audience awards! If 18-year old musician Sonita had a say in things, Michael Jackson would be her father and Rihanna her mother, but for the time being, her only fans are the other teenage girls living with her in a Tehran shelter. There, Sonita, a refugee from Afghanistan, gets counseling for the traumas she has suffered and guidance in shaping her future. But her family only sees that her future as a bride worth $9,000. How can Sonita still succeed in making her dreams come true – especially when women aren't allowed to sing in Iran?

WINNER - Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award
