Quinzaine 2003 | Feature film | 1H22mn

At the beginning of the period of the Taliban take over, Afghan women were not allowed to come out into the streets unless accompanied by a man or boy. Women who had no sons or who had lost their husbands held a demonstration for the right to work, to have a place in the new society. Their demonstrations were violently suppressed. This is the story of a little girl whose mother disguises her as a boy to be able to go out into the street and look for work.
