I became what I am today at the age of twelve.

I remember the precise moment, crouching behind a mud wall on a frigid winter day in 1975... looking into a deserted alley.

I realize I've been looking into that alley for the last 26 years

Afghanistan is a divided country on the verge of war and two childhood friends are about to be torn apart.

It's a beautiful afternoon in Kabul and the skies are full of the excitement and joy of a kite flying tournament.

But neither Hassan or Amir can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever
