    I just watched this film on HBO...and I have a lingering question...does that mean the Nafas dies since she is held captive?

    Re: hi

    Hi sameer! i realize this response is a tad bit too late....but i thought of answering it anyways!
    Literally, no, Nafas does not reach Kandahar. Her last words before she is taken away are, "No I am a captive in their clutches" or something like that.
    Symbolically, it is very effective. It shows Kandahar through Nafas' veil. This probably depicts dreams that women have, which are shattered by the burka. Also, the fact that the ending is such a cliffhanger shows that this story is only one of many many tales of woe that happen to women in afghanistan.
