THE SWALLOWS OF KABUL 喀布爾之燕
LES HIRONDELLES DE KABOUL

Since the ascendancy of the Taliban, the lives of Mosheen and his wife, Zunaira, have been gradually destroyed. Mosheen's dream of becoming a diplomat has been shattered and Zunaira can no longer even appear on the streets of Kabul unveiled. Atiq is a jailer who guards those who have been condemned to death. Atiq's wife, Musarrat, is suffering from an incurable illness. Yet, the lives of these four people are about to become inexplicably intertwined, through death and imprisonment to passion and extraordinary self-sacrifice.

自塔利班統治後,Mosheen與他的妻子Zunaira的幸福生活便不復存在。Mosheen想成為外交官的夢想幻滅,Zunaira不戴面紗甚至不能再與Mosheen一起出現在喀布爾的街上。Atiq是死囚監獄的獄卒。Atiq的妻子Musarrat患有不治之症。然而,這四個人的生命卻隨着死亡、監禁、熱誠和偉大的自我犧牲而莫名地交織在一起。
