2015 VIEWFINDERS COMPETITION WINNER

NYC PREMIERE More than five years into her practice as a defense lawyer in Kabul – the first and only Western lawyer, not to mention the only woman, licensed to work in the Afghan courts – no- nonsense attorney Kimberley Motley finds herself at a crossroads. Though originally motivated to provide for her children’s futures, her experiences have ignited a personal drive to fight against corruption and abuse. With the withdrawal of international troops looming, can Motley brave personal threats and an unstable country to continue her work?

This screening is co-presented with The Nation.
