Plot Summary: "Beyond Honor" is a heart-stopping, emotionally resonant portrayal of gender roles and the dynamics of power in a claustrophobic immigrant family living in Southern California. It is the story of Sahira Abdel-Karim, a young Egyptian-American woman torn between two cultures. The world of her father is decidedly Old World and tightly bound by tradition, while her world is contemporary America and its promise of personal freedom for all. But the American dream finally collapses for the entire Abdel-Karim family in a shocking event of barbaric proportions.
