Twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the approval of his father and
resolves to win the local kite-fighting tournament, to prove that he has
the makings of a man. His loyal friend Hassan promises to help him - for he
always helps Amir - but this is 1970s Afghanistan and Hassan is merely a
low-caste servant who is jeered at in the street, although Amir still feels
jealous of his natural courage and the place he holds in his father's
heart. But neither of the boys could foresee what would happen to Hassan on
the afternoon of the tournament, which was to shatter their lives. After
the Russians invade and the family is forced to flee to America, Amir
realises that one day he must return, to find the one thing that his new
world cannot grant him: redemption.
