A haunting tale of friendship which spans cultures and continents, it follows one man's journey to confront his past and find redemption.
Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and two childhood friends are about to be torn apart.
It's a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament.
