Trailer

Synopsis

Kabul, 1998: the country is under the Taliban regime. Zunaira and Mohsen are young and in love. In spite of the daily violence, they still remain hopeful about ensuring a better future, but one day, a perfectly innocent act leads them to prison. Directors Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobbé-Mévellec paint Yasmina Khadra's bestseller in watercolors, filling the story of a tremendously dark period with light.
