In Detail

We first see what had become normal life in Kabul. A busy market filled with produce and customers. Carefree children play together. A beautiful woman walks the streets in colourful attire. But we are then introduced to the three women who form the core of the film.

We follow dentist Zahra, activist Taranom and government employee Sharifa in real time as they fight to recover their autonomy. Director Mani captures the spirit and resilience of the Afghan women through a raw depiction of their harrowing plight, offering a powerful window into the seismic impact on women's rights and livelihoods after Kabul fell to the Taliban in 2021.
