This is the story of Ali, growing up in a peaceful Afghanistan, but later having to resist the control of first the Russians and later the Taliban, so he and his family could live at peace in their home. It's the story of many young Afghans, a story of the Afghanistan that was, and a story with hope for a brighter future.
