Author and director Atiq Rahimi returns to cinema eight years after his award-winning film Earth and Ashes. Afghanistan´s submission to the Oscars, The Patience Stone is adapted from his best-selling novel. Somewhere, in Afghanistan or elsewhere, in a country torn apart by a war... A beautiful woman in her thirties watches over her paralysed husband in a decrepit room. One day, the woman starts a solitary confession to her silent husband. She talks about her childhood, her suffering, her frustrations, her loneliness, her dreams, her desires... This paralysed man unconsciously becomes her "patience stone," which, according to Persian mythology, shields her from unhappiness, suffering, pains and miseries. But she will truly find herself when she will meet a young soldier. Rahimi wrote The Patience Stone in memory of Nadia Anjuman, a 25-year-old Afghan poet killed by her husband in 2005: "I was tired of always seeing the same discourse on Afghan women, as submissive, as victims. When I go to Afghanistan, I meet women of extraordinary might."
