Afganistanii

A Film by Adrian Silisteanu

Synopsis

THE AFGHANISTANS
Sporadic gunshots echo among the ruins of a village which, though abandoned, is an objective of great import for the Romanian government. This forces two young men to lead a hard negotiation, both for the fate of the settlement and for their own future.
