For Afghans, the choice to leave or stay in Afghanistan is a decision that must be made every day. Filmed in January 2016, AFGHANISTAN BY CHOICE serves as a portrait of how it feels to live day to day in Kabul right now interweaving the lives of five Afghans who are making the choice to stay, leave on a special visa, or plan to leave illegally. This choice is not a simple one. Filled with regret, promise, disappointment, pride, frustration, and hope every individual stands to lose so much no matter what they decide.
