“There is a way to be good again.”

The Kite Runner is a story about friendship, betrayal, hope, and atonement. Beginning in the 1970s and ending in the 2000s, we witness the relationship of two childhood friends, and the impact the Soviet Invasion and the Taliban regimes have on their relationship through the years in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Young Amir and Hassan (Zekeria Ebrahimi and Ahmad Khan Mahmidzada) are as socially different as two people could be. Amir is wealthy and has all of the vestiges of wealth, whereas Hassan is a servant and is a member of the Hazara. Beginning in 1978, the two children are inseparable and spend their time playing and flying kites. Amir flies, and Hassan runs the kite (kite running is fetching a kite when an opponent cuts the spool string to the kite midair with their own kite). However, their social differences are not the difficulties in their friendship which ultimately hinder their bond. The care that Amir’s father, Baba (Homayou Ershadi), shows toward Hassan makes Amir jealous. In Amir’s child mind he believes that Baba cares for him less and exalts the bravery and devotion of Hassan in contrast to the cowardice and weakliness of his son. Of course this is not true, but, in this instance, Amir’s truth outweighs the love and loyalty Hassan has for him — he is the overlooked. This jealousy plays a role in a tragic occasion which forever changes the relationship between the two boys.
