A driver leads them outside, on foot, through the mountains.
What should we do?
Hey, you also get down.
Hey, get up.
Go in peace.
Who is that, mother?
Hey, boy, check the vehicle.
Come to this side.
Dear compatriots! For the first time in the history of Afghanistan, the last remnant of the kingdom of cruelty, authoritarianism and the rule of the bloodthirsty dynasty of Nadershah has come to an end. And the entire power of the government is now in the hands of people of Afghanistan.
Who is that?
It is Hamid.
Hamid, my son.
Homaira, what is going on? Tell me what is going on? Why are you scared?
Hamid! Do you hear the noise?
I can hear it; this is the revolution.
