When Waseem Mahmood's brother broke a confidence and filed a story in the world's highest circulating tabloid, the News of the World, Mahmood feared he'd never work in broadcast media again. History intervened with the events of 9/11, the attack on Afghanistan, and the Taliban's fall. Headed by Mahmood, a group of journalists responded by producing a Kabul-based radio program to disseminate much-needed and, for the first time, uncensored information. What they end up providing is hope for a devastated land and a voice for a people long smothered by oppression. Told with searing honesty, this is a story of struggle, cruelty, and courage populated by ordinary people who risk their lives for freedom.
