The Land of the Enlightened

Back to listing
In northeast Afghanistan, an armed gang of orphaned boys survive by digging up Soviet landmines, hunting for lapis lazuli stones, trading their finds for opium and robbing the caravans heading towards the Tajik border. A haunting and dark odyssey that unfolds among the never-ending wreckage of Soviet and US invasions.
