Along the narrow three kilometres of the Qala-e Wahid, a street in Kabul, the horse-drawn cabs have a hard time amongst the cars. Sometimes there are collisions. The ancient business could fall prey to modernisation. Some shop owners would like to see that happen because the horses make a lot of mess. But despite their hectic lives, the drivers of the horse-drawn cabs still find time for fun – for the camera, but also just for themselves. The streets are Little Afghanistan – as the voice-over says – with all its conflicts and contradictions.
