My Sunny Maad

By Michaela Pavlátová

When Herra, a young Czech woman, falls in love with Nazir, an Afghan, she has no idea of the life that awaits her in a post-Taliban Afghanistan, nor of the family she is going to meet : A feminist grandfather, an adopted child who shines with his intelligence and Freshta, who would do anything to escape her violent and controlling husband. Like every woman of the family, Herra wears a burka and hides in a closet when guests arrive. Soon, she begins a new job with an American woman, Heidi, who doesn’t really understand how women live in Afghanistan and even less that everyone doesn’t want to be saved by Westners.
