    • Tora Bora is a multi layered journey of parents Abou Tareq and Om Tareq in search of their terrorist son Ahmed, who has seemingly been brainwashed by the terrorists, decides to leave Kuwait to join the terrorist in Tora Bora in Afghanistan. Abou Tareq and Om Tareq without telling anybody, decide to go searching for their son in Afghanistan. They are not prepared for the suffering and the darkness of life in Afghanistan that they encounter on this Journey. Their elder son, Tareq, decides to go search for his mother and father and his brainwashed brother seeking the help of the Pakistani intelligence. Tora Bora shows how the mistakes of one son lead to hardships for an entire family in an Arab/Moslem society.
