Kabul, 2009. It is summer, the sky is blue and taxi driver Khaled is on his way back. He goes home to meet his wife and three daughters. He picks up a last client; it’s a woman wearing a veil who abandons her baby on the back seat when she leaves the taxi. What to do with the child? How to find his mother? Why did she abandon him? While following Khaled who tries to find a suitable place for the child, we spend 36 hours discovering Kabul. Khaled is our guide introducing us to the real city with its secret passages. This is a picaresque, hectic and at times funny trip in the city which suffered so much in the last thirty years. The film tackles the theme of children without family or in search of a family. It also depicts the Afghan tradition where a family without male child is not truly a family, and of course the film also probes into the condition of women in a sclerotic society.
