The Stoning of Soraya is an American film from 2008 based on the adaptation from French Iranian journalist Freidoune Sahebjam 's 1990 book, which is based on a true story. The story is about a woman named Soraya; she is falsely accused of being unfaithful by her own husband, who has been trying to divorce her in order to marry a 14-year-old girl. Soraya is condemned to be stoned to death by her whole village. The French journalist comes to the village the day after the stoning; he hears the story told by her aunt and promises her to inform the world about what had happened there and publish a book with Soraya’s death for the world to know.
