Four children around age 8 in Kabul, a year after the US retreat from Afghanistan.

One of the girls has a Youtube channel, thanks to a local film student. A faction within the Taliban supports the continued existence of secular schools for the future of the country. Other than that, it might as well be Afghanistan after the Soviet retreat.
