Growing Up Behind Bars


Al Jazeera

Hundreds of young children in Afghanistan are being forced to share a jail cell with their mothers; women who in many cases are protesting their innocence or have been convicted of so-called moral crimes.  

Many of those children are facing years behind bars, cut off from the outside world yet themselves completely innocent of any offence.

People & Power sent filmmakers Mike Healy and Najibullah Quraishi to find out why.
