Afghanistan has been taken over by the Taliban. A twelve-year-old girl is living with her mother and grandmother, the three of them alone. To survive, she has to dress as a boy and become just like any other little boy.

Osama was the first feature film produced in Afghanistan under the Taliban and has drawn audiences and media coverage around the world ever since it was first released in 2003, winning awards including the Golden Globe for the Best Foreign Language Film. It is a striking story of the terror of the Taliban regime, showing the tragic reality of the repression of women and the negation of their rights which, unfortunately, is the situation prevailing in the country today. Osama is based on a true story, all the actors are amateurs, and it has the force of a documentary report. With this striking and moving film, director Siddiq Barmak revived film-making in Afghanistan. He will be present to meet the audience after the screening.
