In a country offering almost no treatment services despite a crisis of addiction, Laila Haidari took the highly unusual decision to found her own pioneering addiction treatment centre and a restaurant where all of the waiters are recovering heroin addicts. A deeply personal perspective on the global addiction epidemic, the film follows the labour of love of one woman fighting to keep her centre alive in the face of physical threats, governmental opposition and the departure ofthe international community from Afghanistan.
