Precious: Based on Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire follows its main character Claireece Precious Jones endures unimaginable hardships in her young life. Abused by her mother, raped by her father, she grows up poor, angry, illiterate, fat, unloved and generally unnoticed. The Stoning of Soraya M. starts with the viewer stranded in a remote Iranian village, where Sahebjam is approached by Zahra, a woman with a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of her death the day before. Her story attempts to expose what it perceives as the inhumanity of Sharia Law. Her last and only hope for justice lies in the hands of the journalist, who must escape with the story – and his life – in order to communicate the violence to the world.
