Summary:
Since the invasion and attempts at aid and reconstruction, Afghanistan is still experiencing widespread hunger, homelessness and lawlessness. In this film we travel through this troubled land with Rosemary Morrow, an Australian aid worker who operates outside the mainstream. By trade Rosemary is an expert in the field of Permaculture, an agricultural technique that enables individuals and communities to feed themselves using environmentally sustainable methods. She has spent the last 30 years working in Africa, Asia and Central Europe, pioneering the introduction of this technique to shattered communities who are struggling to rebuild their lives after the devastation of war. This documentary invites viewers into the hearts and lives of the people of Afghanistan - the street kids burdened with the responsibility of feeding their families, the war widows struggling in a patriarchal society to feed and shelter their children, and the orphans from the dusty, rubble-strewn streets of Kabul and the remote battle-weary villages in the rugged mountains. In the chilling finale we go into the basement of a derelict building, discovering graphic evidence of Afghanistan's dark and terrible underworld. Most importantly we see the glimmers of hope as Rosemary and her companions slowly and carefully help the people turn the soil and re-grow their lives.
