Transition Generation: A Third World Problem

Alternative Title: N/A

Series Title: N/A


Rashid was the first person from his village to get more than a rudimentary education. Now, when he returns home, he at times feels out of place. Daud is a son of the city: Kabul, capital of Afghanistan. He is from a wealthy family, is educated, but cannot find a job. Mobuba - by Afghan standards - is an emancipated woman. She sees her place to be in the home, but does appear in public without the veil. Through the lives of these individuals we witness the problem people all over the world have in questioning traditional values while selecting only what is most useful from western cultures (1984 IFF catalog).
