From Iranian master filmmaker Moshen Makhmalbaf
comes this scorching and hypnotic drama about a woman
searching for her sister in Taliban-led Afghanistan. The
film is based on the true story of star Nelofer Pazira,
who grew up in Kabul, Afghanistan and emigrated to Canada.
Actually filmed in dangerous Afghanistan, the setting
lends a sense of tragic authenticity to this poignant
story. (Iran, 2001, 85 min., color) In Farsi with English
