Description

Producer Pat Fiske attending.

Mahboba Rawi is a strong-willed founder of Mahboba’s Promise and a mother figure to thousands of orphans in Afghanistan. Abdul, one of these orphans, is in love with Fatemeh, the girl next door.

The two have been exchanging romantic letters for almost a year and hope to marry each other one day. But Fatemeh’s father has other plans – he has decided to marry her off to anyone who can offer a large sum of money as her dowry. When Mahboba hears the story, she is determined to make the marriage happen between Abdul and Fatemah, despite the absurd demands of Fatemeh’s father.
