Storyboard Text

  • I don't want to do that. I promised him I wouldn't send him back to an orphanage.
  • You could relinquish him to an orphanage here, then file an orphan petition. Start your I-600 and your home study while he's in a safe place.
  • If we could ask you to stay in a home for kids for a while.
  • You promised you'd never put me in one of those places, Amir agha.
  • I waited, rocked him until his breathing slowed and his body slackened. I carried him to his bed, set him down.
  • Omar tells Amir it will be very difficult for him to adopt Sohrab in America because of his lack of documents and proof of his relation to him.
  • Suddenly I was on my knees, screaming. Screaming through my clenched throat. Screaming until I thought my throat would rip and my chest explode.
  • Amir tells Sohrab there's a way to take him back to America and that it may take a while. But he also has to tell him its an orphanage.
  • Sohrab falls asleep on Amir out of terror. "Please promise you won't!"
  • Soraya calls Amir, claiming to have a way to get Sohrab legally into the country without the need to put him in an orphanage. When he goes to tell Sohrab, he finds he has tried to kill himself in the bath.
