Casting Farsi/Dari Actor $500-$1000

Synopsis

Unbeknownst to her Kabul neighbors, Shabnam Kapur works as a translator for the United States Military, just as the Afghan state dissolves, August 15, 2021.

With her location known, she prepares for an evacuation that brings her meet staples of her life and culture: a Kabul bookseller preparing to pack up for Pakistan, a chain-smoking taxi-driver willing to volunteer on a dangerous mission to the city’s interior.


Interwoven with the Afghan narrative is the story of Special Operations’ Jon Tyler, from within the United States compound in Kabul.

Doomsday farewells are given to the Afghan special operators, just as Jon forms a midnight decision and plan for rescue; revealed only to his closest confidant.
