Synopsis

Pieter-Jan De Pue co-writes and directs this documentary which looks at gangs of tribal children as they attempt to make a living in the remote countryside of war-torn Afghanistan. With the American military in the process of withdrawing from the country, the kids attempt to salvage any goods they can to sell or exchange for essential provisions. The film follows one gang as they eke out a treacherous existence unearthing live land mines in order to sell them on, while another group trade with smugglers high in the mountains of Pamir.
