Zarifa Ghafari, Afghanistan’s youngest and only female mayor, braves regular assassination threats from the Taliban as she leads her small provincial city towards a better future built on education and equality for women. When it becomes clear that the Taliban will return to power once the US leaves, Zarifa must choose between leaving for her family’s safety or staying to continue her country’s fight for freedom. Directors Tamana Ayazi and Marcel Mettelsiefen deliver astonishing insight into the time before, during, and after the fall of Kabul, articulating what it means to lose your homeland and reminding the world that Afghanistan’s struggle for women’s rights continues. A Netflix release.
