Soviets, Mujahedin, Talibans and ultimately the Americans: They have all left landmines and horrific explosive devices on Afghan soil with which the civilian population has had to live for twenty-five years. Habiba and Shah, husband and wife, have both been mutilated by anti-personnel mines, they have had no schooling and they are an eloquent representation of the state their country is in. Virtually unable to find any kind of work, they manage to interpret with both disillusionment and hope all the alternating power shifts their nation has seen. Without yelling, but by living and tackling the enormous difficulties of everyday life, they appeal against all war and against arms that still continue killing after many years.
