The Kabul Peace House is about a group of peace activists in Afghanistan who are taking great risks to work for what many believe is an impossible dream. This group of young male and female Afghans – led by a charismatic and idealistic man called Insaan – formed a multi-ethnic community, a microcosm of how a new Afghanistan could be: a place of peaceful coexistence, a nation without war that embraces the values of peace and humanity. This is a remarkable story, a rare glimmer of hope and optimism in a country which many predict is destined for many more years of conflict.
