On the outskirts of Kabul, two Afghani kids—siblings whose mother and father are in separate prisons—tote around a rescued mutt while scheming ways to join their mom by getting arrested themselves. Zahed and Gol Ghoti hop from one potential crime scene to the next, trying their best to get caught. Simply told and stunningly executed, Marziyeh Meshkini’s peek into post-Taliban Afghanistan is a feast of arresting vignettes that delivers a potent mix of humor and pathos.
