Based on the novel by Khaled Hosseini, former Afghani refugee and currently the UNHCR Goodwill Envoy. On a glorious afternoon in Kabul, the skies are bursting with the exhilarating joy of a kite-flying tournament. Two childhood friends Amir and Hassan enjoy the competition, but in its aftermath, one boy's fearful act of betrayal tears apart their lives forever, and sets in motion an epic quest for redemption. Now, after 20 years of living in America, Amir returns to perilous Afghanistan under the Taliban's iron-fisted rule to take at least one last daring chance to set things right. Nominated for 2008 Golden Globe Best Foreign Language Film.
