The lives of five people come together in post-9/11 Afghanistan. Marcus, an English doctor whose progressive Afghani wife was murdered by the Taliban, opens his home to others: Lara from St. Petersburg, looking for evidence of her soldier brother who disappeared decades before the Soviet invasian; David, a former American spy who has seen his ideals turned inside out during his twenty-five years in Afghanistan; Casa, a young Afghani with a zealous hatred of the West; and James, Special Forces soldier in whom David sees a dangerous revival of the unquestioning notions of right and wrong that he once held.
