A excellent glimpse into lives in Kandahar and its surrounding, hostile areas. The scene of a great number of amputees hopping to the air drop of a bunch of artificial legs is a scene to behold. The film was shot in a documentary stype but is not a documentary. One of the better made Canadian productions in recent time.

A film, even more beautiful and haunting when seen a second time.
