Sonita is a film about, well, Sonita. Sonita is a female rapper from Afghanistan. She went to Iran from Afghanistan ruled by the Taliban, and after receiving education in Tehran, she dreamed of becoming a rapper. This is not an easy dream to achieve for her, since her parents want to set up an arranged marriage, and Iran does not allow females to become a solo singer. This film is a powerful documentary of the compelling story of Sonita the rapper.
