This is a passionate story of two boys growing up as friends in Afghanistan– but from very different classes. Amir, born to a wealthy family, reflects on his childhood and the turmoil of his homeland as he establishes a new life in America. His guilt forever haunts him as he realizes his cowardly actions toward his friend Hassan, have shaped him into a shameful man. When Amir is called home by a dying friend to Kabul, secrets of his family are revealed and he is given a chance to redeem himself and his relation ship to Hassan. (Jean B.
