Far from Home


10x30 minutes

In 2012, war is coming to an end in Afghanistan. The French soldiers on assignment in the war zone will finally be able to come back home. This is supposed to be good news for all, except maybe for Sergeant Dostali and his men compelled to extend their stay and lengthen war a bit more: one young soldier of the unit has been kidnapped by the Taliban. While dealing with various traffics, Sergeant Dostali tries to save his soldier. Will he succeed when trapped between Ghost, an American blackmailing him, and his superiors disrupting his plans?

Far from Home is a chronicle of life for a French army unit, unfolding on the Afghan soil. The series depicts a medley of situations and moods through the offbeat tone of dramedy, without taking sides. We dive into the monotonous languor of soldiers’ everyday life, we follow a reporter with no scope for action, we are taken between assaults and invisible enemies, all this against the backdrop of different cultures. Nothing is won or lost and no one is right or wrong.
