From internationally acclaimed Iranian director Mosen Makhmalbaf. Nafas, living free in the West, receives a letter from her sister, living in Taliban-controlled Kandahar. After being maimed by a landmine, the sister can no longer endure the torture of her life under the Taliban and vows to commit suicide at the next solar eclipse--a mere three days away. Nafas must enter and travel through Taliban territory undetected as a Westerner to reach and save her sister. (Inspired by a true story.)
