Kabul, Afghanistan. A taxi driver navigates the chaos of the local streets, picking up fares and noting how things have improved since the Taliban controlled the city. But when Khaled gives a ride to a young mother, his routine passenger triggers an unforeseeable series of events. She gets into his cab with her baby boy and leaves the child behind when she gets out. Once Khaled realizes that there is an infant in the back seat, he frantically returns to where he dropped its mother off. But of course, she has disappeared into the crowds.
