Following the international hit The Boy who Plays on the Buddhas of Bamiyan, THE BOY MIR covers not just one year but ten. It tracks the irrepressible and lovable Mir from a naive 8-year-old to a fully grown adult. Over the course of a decade, not only is this a journey into early adulthood in one of the toughest places on earth but also a film that is unmatched in mirroring and unveiling the vitally important story of modern Afghanistan.

THE BOY MIR reveals this day-to-day life of Mir and his family from a very close-up perspective. The narrative is driven by Mir's journey into his early teens, when he will be expected to put his childish ways behind him and begin the difficult process of becoming a man. This is hard enough for any child, but Mir has to face this challenge in modern Afghanistan. In sum, this is a unique portrayal of life, full of humour, full of poignancy, in today's Afghanistan.
