    • Synopsis
    • In Afghanistan, the "batchas" are young male prostitutes who live under the protection of a master in their house where they are trained to dance dressed as a girl for a men's audience.

      AUX BRUITS DES CLOCHETTES tells the story of one of them, Saman, who starts worrying when he sees the new recruit, a boy named Bijane who has been chosen to replace him. Even if he is jealous of this boy, who could steal the feelings and protection of his master Farroukhzad, he has to initiate and teach him the art of the Batcha dancing.
