Description: Afghanistan has been at war for 24 years. The West's battle against the Taliban is only the latest of a series of conflicts the Afghans have suffered. Filmmaker Taran Davies and Walied Osman, an Afghan-American, set out to gain an understanding of how a generation of war has affected the Afghan people. From Queens, New York to the frontline in Afghanistan, Taran and Walied spend time with several Afghan families. They meet a member of the royal family who was tortured by the Taliban, a doctor and journalist stuck in a one room apartment with their four children, a relief worker trying to rebuild his country one road at a time, an Islamic elder who dedicated his life to peace and his warrior son who fought alongside the Soviets.
