Synopsis:
Marziyeh Meshkini's beautifully crafted and moving insight into post-Taliban Afghanistan follows the fortunes of a young brother and sister and the dishevelled dog they rescue from a Kabul street. Visiting that jail where their mother is imprisoned, the itinerant trio is permitted to stay overnight. But the following morning, they are thrown out: prison is for criminals, not homeless orphans. Desperate to return to their mother in jail, brother and sister attempt a series of robberies, but each seems doomed to failure until a fugitive seems to offer an unusual solution: they can learn to steal watching Hollywood films: alternatively. European cinema can teach them how to get caught.

Count your blessings - Stray Dogs review by RP

Spoiler Alert
17/06/2018

A bleak film showing life in Afganistan.

Two children live on the streets as both parents are in prison. The mother's crime, simply that thinking her husband dead she remarried.

Hard to realise that they think their best option is to try to get sent to jail themselves, which they try to do by various ruses.
