Poetic drama following the story of two homeless children who rescue a stray dog on the streets of Kabul in post-Taliban Afghanistan. When they visit the jail where their mother is a prisoner, they are permitted to stay with her for a night. But the following morning, they are thrown out: prison is for criminals, not for homeless children. Desperate to return to the jail and be with their mother, the brother and sister attempt a series of robberies, but each seems doomed to failure - until a fugitive offers them an unusual solution. The film won the Premio Open Award at the 2004 Venice Film Festival.
