(AIDS)

Dexter, age 11, who has AIDS, and his next door neighbor Eric, a little older and much bigger, become best friends. Eric also becomes closer to Dexter's mother than to his own, who is neglectful and bigoted and violently forbids their friendship upon learning of it.

After he has a car breakdown, the French journalist Sahebjam (James Caviezel) ends up in a remote Iranian village, where Zahra (Shohreh Aghdashloo) tells him about her niece. Soraya's husband, Ali (Navid Negahban) wants to divorce her because he has fallen in love with a fourteen-year old. Because Soraya (Mozhan Marnò) refuse to divorce, Ali accuses her of adultery with the local, corrupt Mullah. There is no proof, but the people are easily persuaded. The innocent Soraya is stoned. Zahra's story makes clear that the women are without any rights. Her only hope for satisfaction is that the story of Soraya reached the outside world by means of the journalist.
