Think of Afghanistan, and for many people the image that comes to mind is of a nation torn apart by war and hardship. But this inspiring documentary shows there's more to life there than that by tracing the efforts of coach Taj Malik and his young Afghan cricket team as they go after their seemingly impossible dream of making it into the 2011 World Cup. The film follows the men for two years, as they progress from playing on pitches of rubble to games abroad, moving up the international league tables to a crucial qualifying match in South Africa.
This adaptation is a powerful story of friendship and betrayal set in Afghanistan.
