In 2006 Banaz Mahmod, a young Kurdish woman living in London, was murdered by members of her own family in an honour killing. This is a heartbreaking document of the story around her violent marriage, hopeful love affair and the fear she suffered in the months leading up to her gruesome death. We hear from Banaz’s sister who bravely testified against her own family, and of the tireless efforts of Detective Chief Inspector Caroline Goode, who led the hunt for the killers.
