December 11, 2014: Premiere night in Kabul. A theatre troupe takes the stage in a play about the terrifying and chaotic moments after a suicide bombing. That night, the performance comes to an abrupt end when a 17-year-old boy in the audience blows himself up, turning the play’s tragic topic into reality. Through the powerful and brave testimonials of the event’s witnesses, this hard-hitting documentary illustrates the dilemmas and challenges faced by Afghan artists.
