Addicted in Afghanistan Trailer (2009)

Trailer for the documentary Addicted in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan is a country devastated by the horrors of war, crime, violence and poverty. It is also a country blighted with the cultivation and supply of opium. Although it is estimated that 95% of all heroin on the streets of the UK & Europe comes from Afghanistan, few talk of the drugs that stay within the country and the devastating effects it is having on its children - the youth & future of Afghanistan. After the war on Terror and the fall of the Taliban, what future is there for the next generation? Jabar and Zahir are two 15 year old friends, whose own sisters, mothers and fathers are also addicted to heroin and opium. Addicted in Afghanistan is an intimate and uncompromising portrayal, filmed over a year, of the day to day struggles of a new generation of children addicted to heroin, trying to find their way in the new Afghanistan.
