Dreams of peace and independence in war-torn Afghanistan.
Marzia dreams of peace and independence. Though these attributes are part of daily life in many countries, in Afghanistan, her dreams are revolutionary. Marzia’s story ultimately becomes a symbol of the wider battle Afghan women are waging for greater independence and the right to decide their own fate. The film follows Marzia from the spring of 2011 to the end of 2014 when international forces are set to depart from Afghanistan.
