About the film

Zahra and Sadiqa have a chance to become Afghanistan’s first female superstars. The film follows their show against the backdrop of the escalating situation in the country, which has once again fallen into the hands of the Taliban following the departure of US troops in 2021.

Neither the well-meaning advice of their own families nor anonymous death threats can deter them from their passion for music and singing. Withstanding hate-fuelled personal attacks is becoming increasingly difficult for the singers during the closely watched TV competition. Their role model is juror Aryana Sayeed, who has been actively fighting for women’s rights in Afghanistan since her return to her homeland in 2011. However, the popular singer only goes out in public incognito. With the withdrawal of allied troops from the country, she fears that art and culture will fall out of favour, and women will once again lose the rights they have achieved in this conservative country over the past two decades.
