Azadah, a little Afghan girl, is lucky enough to meet a German photographer. At the moment when her friend has to go back home, the girl asks her to take her with her, because she wants to discover the world, the arts, literature... All those things that the photographer has talked about. Azadah feels that if he stays in her country, her future is concocted in advance...

This album of little text, just enough to put us in situation, is revealed through the magnificent illustrations that invite the reader to discover not only the sincerity of the relationship between the two friends but the many possibilities offered by the world, so many times silenced by guns or by meaningless laws and policies.

This is the particular tribute that Jacques Goldstyn wanted to make to the photojournalist Anja Niedringhaus, murdered in 2014 in Afghanistan. Although in this book, the thirst of knowledge and freedom that Azadah feels stands out more than the figure of the photographer. The author is a master in the art of recreating hard and captivating realities immersing himself in the heart of his characters that give his stories a vibrant and hopeful air.
