Axelle is a determined teenager who is fascinated by the military. Jim is young immigrant who’s preparing to join the army. Eight months after they first met, they find each other again in a bowling alley.· While they slowly bring down their protective barriers, the two teens reveal their positions. Their future, and the future of the child Axelle is carrying, is linked to Afghanistan, a country they know nothing about. Critically and publicly acclaimed, Afghanistan, delicately deals with the battles that we choose to take on, and those we choose not to.
