The Sweetest Embrace follows Soorgul and Amir on a moving journey home to Afghanistan after 16 years in exile. Sent as school boys to neighbouring Tajikistan during the Soviet occupation of their country, they became stranded when Afghanistan fell into chaos and civil war. Together, the two young men journey through one of the world's most harsh and yet beautiful landscapes. But when their paths diverge, their futures become filled with unexpected and unpredictable turns as they seek to find resolution in their lives.
