The Price of Honor - the Murders of Amina and Sarah Said

Format

Summary
The Price of Honor is a documentary film about the murders of Amina and Sarah Said, teenage sisters from Lewisville, Texas, who were killed in a premeditated “honor killing” in 2008. The film chronicles the lives of the sisters and the path to their eventual murders by their own father, Yaser Said, who fled the crime scene and remains at large. The film reveals new details and uncovers evidence about the case that has never before been made public, including a previous murder committed by Yaser, and the ultimate sacrifice of Amina Said, who had a secret plan to protect the love of her life. Her voice, through home videos, emails, letters and diary entries, becomes a powerful thread throughout the film depicting the girls' struggle.. Despite the tragedy, viewers learn of an incredible love story that still has life after death. Friends, family members, experts and activists against “honor violence” emotionally guide viewers through the girls’ lives and deaths, in the process launching a movement to bring Yaser Said to justice. The Price of Honor discredits the prevailing theory of law enforcement that Yaser fled to his native Egypt after shooting his daughters, instead proposing that he has been in hiding in the U.S. all along. The film’s additional mission is to bring awareness to the global issue of honor violence and raise the bar on how social services and law enforcement handle honor violence henceforth in the US..
