Synopsis

Children of Kabul provides rare access to the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan and into the lives of four young Afghan children - Omid, Sanabar, Yasamin and Fayaz, providing a first-hand account of a generation washing cars, picking garbage, selling food and hammering metal to earn money for their families. Devastated by war and economic difficulties, these children are the breadwinners of their families, creating an uncertain future for a country on the front lines of American foreign policy.
