    Akbar, Hakim, Soori and Mohammad are born to Afghan parents in Iran and dream of being rock stars. Never allowed to perform a concert in Iran, they take a dangerous journey from Iran to Afghanistan - a mother land they've never seen - in order to perform their first concert in front of the ruins of Buddha, in Bamiyan.

    This film will only be available in Docs for Sale on November 23, after its World Premiere.
