Intrigued by the tale of one woman's journey across Afghanistan to save her friend, Mohsen Makmahlbaf risked entering the country to research his screenplay. Nafas leaves her refuge in Canada to brave the Taleban regime in an endeavour to ensure her sister's survival. A vibrant plea for women, and for humanity in general.

Ecumenical Jury Prize, Cannes 2001
