Laila at the Bridge

One of my best friends from growing up, Elissa Mirzaei, is creating this documentary with her husband Gulistan called Laila at the Bridge.  Watch this AMAZING trailer below and please help them complete this film project telling the story of a woman in Afghanistan, Laila Haidari, who owns a restaurant where all of the staff are addicts. In the face of opposition from the Afghan government and without any funding, Laila finances her shelters through her own restaurant, the only one of its kind in the country where recovered addicts are employed as waiters.
