Storyboard Text

  • “Because history isn’t easy to overcome. Neither is religion. In the end, I was a Pashtun and he was a Hazara, I was Sunni and he was Shi’a, and nothing was ever going to change that” (25).
  • Amir
  • Character vs. Society
  • Hassan
  • “‘I watched Hassan get raped,’ I said to no one. (...) A part of me was hoping someone would wake up and hear, so I wouldn’t have to live with this lie anymore” (86).

  • Character vs. Self
  • Baba
  • Amir
  • “He put on his gloves again. ‘I grew up with Ali.’ he said through clenched teeth. ‘My father took him in, he loved Ali like his own son. Forty years Ali’s been with my family. Forty goddamn years. And you think I’m just going to throw him out?’ He turned to me now, his face as red as a tulip. ‘I’ve never laid a hand on you, Amir, but you ever say that again…’ He looked away, shaking his head. ‘You bring me shame”(89-90).
  • Character vs. Character
  • “‘Her name was Homaria. She was a Hazara, the daughter of our neighbor’s servants.(...) We used to meet secretly in my father’s apple orchards (...) You should have seen my father’s face when I told him. My mother actually fainted. (...) That same day, my father put Homaira and her family on a lorry and sent them off’” (98-99).
  • Character vs. Society
  • “I lifted Hassan’s mattress and planted my new watch and a handful of Afghani bills under it. I waited another thirty minutes. Then I knocked on Baba’s door and told what I hoped would be the last of a long line of shameful lies” (104).
  • Character vs. Character
  • “I loved him in that moment, loved him more than I’d ever loved anyone, and I wanted to tell them all that I was the snake in the grass, the monster in the lake. I wasn’t worthy of this sacrifice; I was a liar, a cheat, and a thief. And I would have told, except that a part of me was glad” (105).
  • Character vs. Self
