From acclaimed director Jolyon Hoff (Searching for Michael Peterson, The Staging Post) comes a deeply touching journey of discovery, identity, and connection through the eyes of former Afghan refugee, Muzafar Ali.
When Muzafar discovers that Afghans have been an integral part of Australia for over 160 years, he begins to photograph their descendants in a search to define his own new Afghan-Australian identity. Then the Taliban take over Afghanistan and his old country comes calling.
