"There is a way to be good again"
This haunting tale of friendship spans cultures and continents and follows one man’s journey to confront his past and find redemption.
Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and childhood friends, Amir (played by Ben Turner – Casualty) and Hassan are about to be torn apart. It’s a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament. But neither of the boys can foresee what will happen to Hassan that afternoon, an event that is to shatter their lives.
Based on Khaled Hosseini’s international bestselling novel and film, this powerful and dramatic story leaves a lasting impression on anyone it touches.
