Afghanistan, 1975: Twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the
local kite-fighting tournament and his loyal friend Hassan promises
to help him. But neither of the boys can foresee what will happen
to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives.
After the Russians invade and the family is forced to flee to
America, Amir realises that one day he must return to Afghanistan
under Taliban rule to find the one thing that his new world cannot
grant him: redemption.
