In Kabul the sale of TVs is booming, and despite near-daily power outages, many Afghans spend a lot of time watching programs from Turkey, the U.S., or India or from one of the country's own local stations. This film explores the array of viewing options available in Afghanistan and talks to professionals working in its media industry-which is thriving in the post-Taliban era. Why is television so important now? Who funds local programming, and what messages does it broadcast? Award-winning writer Atiq Rahimi comments on some positive impacts TV has had on young people; and a female broadcaster says that although women now have a presence on the airwaves, they still have a long way to go.
