Original title: Let z Kábulu
Participated in: MIDPOINT Feature Launch 2023

ZIBAA (30), a successful Afghan filmmaker and head of the National Film Fund recently got engaged to SAMIR (29), the love of her life. Her end-of-summer wedding plans are horribly destroyed when Taliban unexpectedly seizes Kabul, and Zibaa finds herself facing a life-changing decision. As a famous anti-Taliban activist and a governmental employee, Zibaa's life is at risk. While Samir suggests escaping to the conservative, male dominated south for safety, Zibaa's sister-in-law begs her to leave the country and take her daughters with her. Caught between her love for Samir and her nieces future, Zibaa has only one hour to make a decision.
