Two-time Oscar nominee and MacArthur "genius" award winner James Longley follows the lives of students and teachers in an old Kabul neighborhood that is trying to rebuild in the midst of civil war. Filmed over several years in Afghanistan, Longley offers unprecedented access, insight and perspectives across generations perched precariously before an uncertain future.
