About THE KITE RUNNER

Based on the 2003 best-selling novel, this epic drama follows boyhood friends Amir and Hassan in 1970s Afghanistan. After witnessing terrible brutality and betraying Hassan, Amir immigrates to the U.S. with his father, his regret, and his shame. When Amir is summoned home to Afghanistan thirty years later to help an ailing friend, secrets are uncovered. This beautiful and complicated story shares an inside view of Afghani culture, while exploring the price of loyalty and friendship, the desire for integrity, and hope for redemption.

Spangler’s adaptation is so faithful to the events,
characters, and spirit of the novel.
