Film Description

An inspired documentary about the Afghan version of the television show 'Pop Idol', which sees 2,000 contestants (three of them women) compete for a chance to be the next Afghan 'pop idol'. After years of war and Taliban rule, millions across Afghanistan watch the reality series on TV and vote for their favourite singers via their mobile phones - for many their first encounter with democracy. The film follows four of the contestants who risk their personal safety - and even their lives - to appear on the show.
