The Immigration Lawyer:Shattered Freedom


On popular demand, we have decided to offer the full length movie Shattered Freedom free online on Vimeo.  Please feel free to share with your friends.  There is a ‘Tip Jar’ attached to it for those who want to help us with the making of more socially sensitive movies such as H4 The Curse. Please donate generously.

 Shah Peerally Productions proudly presents “Shattered Freedom,” the latest episode in the story of “An American Dream,” from the series, “The   Immigration Lawyer.” Inspired by the hardships and struggles faced by Shah Peerally himself, as well as his law firm’s and his own personal experiences as a career immigration lawyer, the film is an uncompromising work of fiction depicting the trials and tribulations of immigrants seeking to partake of the American Dream. It evokes the hopes and aspirations of all immigrants to America and unravels the challenges of the American legal system and ultimate assimilation into American society that virtually every immigrant can relate to.

Finally for those who want to watch the full movie of Shattered Freedom, please rent it online here. Note that the proceeds go to fund more socially sensitive movies like H4 the curse – so please be generous and special thanks to my friends at $3.99-




The first part of the film recounts the story of a woman who has emerged from an abusive relationship and overcome insurmountable odds to arrive in America, only to see her dream shattered bit by bit. While the second part follows the journey of Ahmad, a man fleeing Iraq to the sanctuary of America, only to face an ordeal he had never imagined. But as with Shah Peerally’s other films, “Shattered Freedom” incorporates real-life, firsthand experiences of immigration attorneys and attempts to cover a swath of major social issues related to immigration and immigrants, making the stories in this film more than just ordinary stories.

Produced entirely in the Bay Area in Northern California by Shah Peerally Productions, “Shattered Freedom” showcases new local talents.
