Long synopsis : Two children – a brother and sister - rescue a stray dog on the streets of Kabul. That evening they visit the jail where their mother is a prisoner. Since her children have nowhere to live, they are permitted to stay with her at night. But the following morning, they are thrown out: prison is for criminals, not homeless orphans. Desperate to return, brother and sister embark on a series of failed robberies. A fugitive tells them they can learn to steal from watching Hollywood movies. Alternatively, European cinema can teach them how to be caught.
