The Price of Honor
The Price of Honor is an award-winning documentary 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. This sensitive and emotionally-told film is the only with exclusive access to the family members within this horrific crime. It reveals new details and uncovers evidence about the case that has never before been made public, including a previous murder committed by Yaser, his abuse of his daughters from a young age, and the ultimate sacrifice of Amina Said, who had a secret plan to protect the love of her life. Her voice, through home video, emails, letters and diary entries, becomes a powerful thread throughout the film depicting the girls’ struggle and makes us reconsider much of what was assumed about this case. Despite the tragedy, viewers learn of an incredible love story that still has life after death.
