Synopsis

An adaptation of one of the biggest-selling and most talked-about novels of the decade. This powerful story of friendship and betrayal takes place in the country of Afghanistan, beginning in the late 1970s. Although Amir and Hassan are born on different sides of the country's class divide - Amir is well-to-do while Hassan is the son of his father's servant - the two boys are firm friends. But when Amir fails to act to stop Hassan falling into the hands of a local bully, the results destroy their friendship. And as their country too goes through dramatic changes, that one childhood moment comes to haunt the rest of their lives.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
