Another movie about Afghanistan during the Taliban regime. A woman who worked at the hospital that was closed, so she lost her job and the only way to continue to feed the family is to ask her 12-year old daughter to pretend to be a boy and work. It was no easy and soon she got caught...

My review:
A poor country in a turbulent time. This is the second movie about Afghanistan that I watched recently. I can't help but feel really sorry for what this country is going through and how thankful that we are living in a comfortable stable society.
