The film accompanies the life of an Afghan girl in Mazar-e-Sharif who is raised as a boy and tells the story of a young Afghan singer who dressed up as a boy to lead a "freer life" and now lives in London. The narrative is based on close-up observations and atmospherically descriptive landscape shots of urban and rural spaces.

In the two-channel installation "Bacha Posh", Farahnaz (the Afghan protagonist from BOY) is accompanied on two screens, quietly, closely and observantly, on the one hand in her everyday life outside, at sports, in the hairdresser's, while shopping etc., and on the other hand, an insight is given into the private life: into the intimate world of women, the family in which Farahnaz has the freedom to be as she wants to be. These close observations of a special family in Afghanistan are embedded in long, quiet camera shots that show the streets of Mazar-e-Sharif and draw a cautious picture of a city and its condition.
