This free documentary film is exploring the complex relations between the Taliban, Iran, Pakistan and fundamentalist Islamic groups operating in these regions. The documentary makes it clear that the Taliban have now turned their attention to Iran and have been fermenting trouble there.

The Taliban take us to see Iranian hostages. Caught by the mujahadeen these diplomats were sold to the Taliban. They’re booty in the intensifying struggle between the two great houses of Islam. Afghanistan is Sunni – Iran, Shia. Taliban members tell us of their intent to take the Taliban’s revolution on to Iran. Mohiuddin is a militant member of Iran’s Sunni minority.

They are guests of the Taliban and have previously operated here in secret. But here they make an explosive announcement: the launch of their own Taliban-style revolution on Iranian soil. And if nations start aligning, Pakistan would be right by the Taliban’s side. Pakistan’s creation of the Taliban is again strongly depicted through the Taliban Madrassas or schools, which are based in Pakistan.

Filming in a key religious school near Peshawar, the reporters find Sami-ul-Haq preaching to 2,500 students from all over the Arab world. A man who is one of the Taliban’s ideological founding fathers, provides them with a new generation of recruits. Watching this documentary makes it clear, why a quick victory in Afghanistan is not possible with military forces.
