The children in Kabul / Tro Håb Afghanistan

Jens Pedersen (DK, 2013)

In the shadow of conflict the children in Kabul continue life for better or worse. Money is tight and many of them spend much of their time in the streets selling chewing gum, collecting paper and washing cars for the survival of their families. The five-film series portrays five children, who commute between work, family and a street school where they meet their friends. They share a happy-go-lucky attitude to the challenges of life and a desire to become someone.
