GIve me the kite! I need to give it back to Amir!
Context on Assef's Interests

Sohrab's Suicide Attempt
I want to go back home, I know I will be left alone again!
This scene is the most important one because it starts the conflict, and is the initiating incident that thickens the storyline. Without the severity of the scenario shown, viewers miss the importance of the scene and its effects on both people.
Without proper context of Assef and his interest with the German militia, it was difficult to create connections between the actions he was taking part of, and why he does them in the first place.
Sohrab's suicide attempt provides Amir with an example of the importance of Sohrab in the process of redemption and forgiving himself. This scene is needed due to the aftermath of the suicide, and how it made Sohrab and Amir connect more.
