Documentary which captures the seemingly impossible quest to challenge centuries-old traditions and values to make a love marriage happen in Afghanistan. Mahboba Rawi, a strong-willed Afghan-Australian woman, and the founder of Mahboba's Promise, has dedicated her life to helping orphans, widows and schoolgirls in Afghanistan. Abdul, one of these orphans, is in love with Fatemeh, the girl next door. The two have been exchanging romantic letters for over a year and hope to marry one day, but Fatemeh's father has other plans. When Mahboba hears the story, she is very concerned about Abdul, and Fatemeh's possible fate in a forced marriage. She is determined to make the marriage happen between Abdul and Fatemah, however, Fatemehs father makes demands beyond anyones expectations. He wont let the marriage happen unless Mahboba pays him $10,000 or finds a wife for his eldest son to replace Fatemeh's role in the household. With nothing to Abdul's name, the fate of the couple depends entirely on Mahboba's ability to meet or negotiate the father's terms. But she only has one month and limited resources.
