    SOLD OUT

Sonita

Sonita Alizadeh is like many teenagers—she loves hip-hop, argues with her mother, and gossips with her friends. She is also an Afghan refugee living under the tenuous protection of a Tehran homeless shelter, where she contends with the imminent risk of being sold into marriage under the Afghan system of “bride price.” In this inspiring documentary, she calls upon her greatest passion—rap music—in a fight for freedom and selfdetermination, rhyming all the way.
