The documentary narrates the lives of 3 ordinary civilians: a journalist, a female street artist, and a young Army cadet who are stuck in this never-ending war between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

While the second part focuses on how we obtained rare access into Taliban bad Lands, and understand why the Taliban are gaining control of more territory, 18 years since America invaded the country.

In a tweet, the award-winning filmmaker shared, “Thrilled that my Afghan war film ‘Caught in the Crossfire’ wins the Best Feature Documentary award at Paris Film Festival 2021.”
