Afghan boys don’t cry

In Afghanistan, during the Taliban regime, women are forbidden to work and to walk on the streets without the company of a male. The teenager girl Osama cuts her hair and dresses like a boy to get a job and support her widow mother and grandmother. There is no man in her family, since her father and her brother were killed in previous Afghan wars, and the family has no means of survival.

Beginning in the fall of 1986 and continuing for the next four years South Korea was haunted by the nation’s first recorded serial killer.
