The Patience Stone

Directed by Atiq Rahimi
US release date: September 20, 2013

In a country torn apart by war, a young woman in her thirties watches over her older husband in a decrepit room. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. He has been abandoned by his fellow combatants and even by his own brothers. One day, the woman's vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her childhood, her suffering, her frustrations, her loneliness, her dreams, desires and secrets. A film directed by Franco-Afghan writer Atiq Rahimi, based on his award-winning novel.
