Summary
"In the broken cityscape of Kabul, Afghanistan, amid the dust and rubble of war, Westerners and Afghans adjust to the uncertain possibilities of peace. [The film] shuttles through the broken streets of the city, moving between public space and private, listening in on conversations, posing questions, probing the darker alleys mainstream media avoids ... Rejecting the usual device of narration and portraiture, the film asks the viewer to experience Kabul as a newly arrived visitor would"--Container.
