In San Francisco, novelist Amir (Abdalla) reflects back on his childhood in Kabul, Afghanistan, and the terrible events that befell him and his servant/best friend Hassan (Mahmidzada) before the Soviet invasion in 1979.
An engaging melodrama whose less convincing plot points are superseded by some astonishingly affecting performances from the mostly unknown cast.
