If You Meant to Kill Me

Duration: 0:51:10 | Channel: Documentary   Subtitled in English   Jordan  
In Jordan, a woman threatened to get killed for honor can only be saved if she surrenders and is killed, or if she seeks protection from authorities that can offer her nothing. This is a film that talks about three women who have been imprisoned for their protection in Jordan, why and how they got to prison, and how this -unethical- shelter has changed their lives. All women have been detained under Jordanian laws that breach Jordan's human rights' agreement. Selected experts talk about the legal and humane aspects of this case, along with some re-enactments that portray the horror these women lived before, during, and after going to prison.
