Powerful drama portraying the hardships and strength of spirit of two children. After their father is killed in a well cave-in, Jafar and Jamal are kidnapped while walking along the road, and sold into slavery. While Jamal is dressed in fancy silks and shipped off to be the playmate of a Saudi prince, Jafar is forced to smuggle goods over the Pakistan and Iran border as a badook. Escaping his captors, however, Jafar sets off with his new friend Noredin on a quest to free Jamal - and their adventure builds towards a gripping climax that won’t be forgotten. Screened at the Director's Fortnight at Cannes in 1992, 'Deep Breath' is not to be missed.
