Why do people like the Taliban?

The award-winning documentary explores the question of why people support the Taliban. The initial point is the own family story of the journalist Mariam Noori. Her grandfather turned away from the West and toward the Taliban in the course of the Afghanistan War. The 85-minute documentary portrays the Taliban, their supporters and critics, and uses archive footage to put their statements in a historical context.
