In the 1970’s in Kabul, Afghanistan, Amir and Hassan, though socially from different classes, grow up together as best friends. Amir feels like his father, Baba, prefers Hassan, even though Hassan is the son of Amir and Baba’s servant, Ali. Despite Amir’s growing dislike of him, Hassan loyally defends Amir at every turn. At a local kite-running festival, Amir witnesses Hassan being brutally raped by a bully but doesn’t come to his rescue. Amir then frames Hassan for stealing Baba’s watch, forcing Baba to fire Ali and make them move away. When Amir and Baba eventually resettle in America, Amir is forced, many years later, to return to Kabul and deal with his personal demons resulting from how he mistreated Hassan.
