What’s The Kite Runner Like?

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 the upcoming kite flying tournament.

Neither of our two main characters, Hassan or Amir, can foresee the terrible incident which will shatter their lives forever. But for today there are together, but only for today.
