The short documentary “Boy” narrates through atmospheric pictures of urban environments and close observations the lives of an afghan girl which is raised as a boy in Mazar-e-Sharif and a young afghan singer, who meanwhile lives in London but wore boys clothes to be more free in afghan society.
Both try to find a very special way to deal with their role in society and fight for their right to live a self determined life far away from conventional images of a woman/girl in Afghanistan.
