AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In Taliban-ruled Afghanistan, Sonam's world is dark and silent. Then one day, she follows a magical, melodious sound to a walled garden, and her world is silent no more. The sound is music, and it lifts her up amongst the stars and takes her deeper than the tree roots in the earth. How can she hold on to this feeling in a world where music is forbidden? A lyrical fable-like story about the irrepressible power of music.'
