In the late 80s 15-year-old Qodrat sells cinema tickets on the black market of Kabul, until the police takes him into an orphanage run by the Sowjets. In order to keep his head above water in this brutal dog-eat-dog place he must make friends quickly. But as a fanatic Bollywood fan he can still escape his everyday life into daydreams of his favourite movie scenes. A coming-of-age story that not only surprises with its unusual setting but also with its charming Bollywood-style musical numbers.
