Hewad is a nine-year-old street hawker in Kabul who dreams of becoming a film star. With the arrival of an Australian photographer, could his dream finally come true? From her exile in Australia, this Iranian filmmaker and poet has drawn inspiration from a true story which she weaved into this tale of hope. The recent return of the Taliban heightens its poignancy.
