In this superb documentary, Skateistan shows the real Afghanistan and the tough challenges facing an independent NGO. It profiles the lives of Afghan children and their struggle for better life. Half the Afghan population is now under 15 years. Health and literacy are two major areas of concern. Skateboarding is an excuse to reach out to the children and provide them with care.
