One young boy becomes, over the course of ten years, a young man. It is a common story but this is Afghanistan, one of the most dangerous countries on earth. What makes the story even more remarkable is the humour and adventure that runs through it. Every new-challenge is met with a smile. Few films, if any have revealed the inner life of an Afghan family and no other film has tracked Afghans from the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001 for a decade. To understand the world, you need to understand Afghanistan. To understand Afghanistan you need to understand the Afghan people.
