Synopsis

Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, is swallowed in the never-ending bloody conflict. This we know from the numerous headlines which appear in the media almost daily. Nevertheless, inhabitants of a 5 million city continue with their regular life and try not to lose hope that the wind of history eventually will change its course. No surprise that Aboozar Amini tried hard to show this invisible side of Kabul in his debut film. He follows the story of Abas, the bus driver, who tries his best to keep afloat and earn his daily bread in a turbulent city. Elsewhere in the city, two brothers, Afshin and Benjamin, whose father, a former soldier, leaves the country for reasons of personal safety, need to grow fast and learn how to behave like adults.
