Young Shahab is a constant daydreamer in Lahore, Pakistan's bustling "City of Gardens" and home to the springtime Basant celebration. He's even ignoring the upcoming kite-flying contest--since his grandfather was a great champion in the festival, he is reluctant to follow in those giant footsteps. But when Shahab meets some friendly characters from Pakistani folklore in his daydreams, they help him connect with his heritage as he and his father fly a beautiful kite higher than the tallest mosque. Don't miss this unique collaboration with the Pakistani National Council on the Arts, an inspiring depiction of growing up in a metropolis bursting with rich tradition. For ages 9 and up.
