Director Shahrbanoo Sadat
This impressive debut by Afghanistan’s first female director captures, in full detail, life in a remote village – particularly that of the shepherd children.
Unfolding playfully, the drama is held together by the villagers’ relentless storytelling. Their stories range from common gossip to the highly folkloric and even wondrous moments of magic realism.
