What if, for a time, she was able to experience love, life and liberty -- unconstrained, unencumbered -- the way a man might? And what if she was then forced to make a choice between these two extremes after regaining her memory – either accepting a woman’s expected role in society or seeking to maintain that sense of self-determination and free will once again? What would she do? Afghan Girl explores these questions through the eyes of Nadia, a fifteen-year-old girl from rural Afghanistan who is faced with this reality.
