DAUGHTERS continues the extraordinary story of Princess Sultana.
Gripping and personal, DAUGHTERS recounts the lonely battle of a Princess who is attempting to secure freedoms for her daughters.
But when her nephews are caught committing an unspeakable act against a 12-year-old girl, Sultana is galvanized into action.
Risking her personal status and wealth, she takes a stand against the complacency of her male relatives over the child's fate.
Sultana tells of appalling oppressions, everyday occurrences that in any other culture would be seen as shocking human rights violations: thirteen-year-old girls forced to marry men five times their age, young women killed by drowning, stoning, or isolation in the "women's room." PRINCESS is a testimony to a woman of indomitable spirit and courage, and you will will never forget her or her Muslim sisters."
