"Return to Afghanistan" is a film about forces of destiny colliding against human will on the road of destiny where no one knows what will happen next.

Though the male dominated society--including her own uncle--contests her directorial roll she persists and leaves the country successfully with 82 hours of raw footage.

She returns to New York City with her small crew on Aug. 13, 2001. A month later it is Sept. 11. Safe in a democratic nation she is now faced with new challenges in a post 9/11 world where nothing and no one is seen the same. "Return to Afghanistan" gives us a personal account of one woman's struggle to take charge of her own destiny despite intense social and personal pressures.
