Banaz A Love Story is a documentary film chronicling an act of overwhelming horror -- the brutal honour killing of Banaz Mahmod, a young British woman in suburban London in 2006, killed and "disappeared" by her own family, with the agreement and help of a large section of the Kurdish community, because she tried to choose a life for herself. It was a case which shocked the entire world and received enormous international press coverage; but until now, the voice of Banaz herself has never been heard. The film tells Banaz's story, in her own words, for the first time -- and tells the story of the extraordinary police team who refused to give up, and finally brought her killers to justice.
