The famous Afghan leader, Ahmed Shah Massoud was born in Jangalak in the Panjshir in 1953. He was assassinated by two Tunisian assassins on September 9th 2001, ostensibly as part of the 9/11 process to draw the US into the Afghan war. This film looks at Massoud's life through the eyes of his colleagues and friends and examines what made him the great leader that he was. Massoud's personal meditation on Islam, history, civilization, literature, politics and military science, enabled him to draw from the writings of the 12th century philosopher, Al-Ghazali. This taught him to wage war without hatred, bitterness or revenge. He was Destiny's gift to Afghanistan in its time of crisis. The film is 52 minutes long and has been shot on location in Afghanistan.
