Production Description
Taroon once served as an interpreter for the U.S. military in Afghanistan. Now the Americans — and their promises of safety — have withdrawn, and he spends his days in hiding, a target of the increasingly powerful Taliban. On the eve of his son’s birth, Taroon must remain in his sister’s apartment or risk his life to see his child. With shattering precision, Sylvia Khoury’s thriller tracks the human cost of immigration policy, and the overlooked legacy of America’s longest, and ongoing, war.
