Afghanistan, 2005. George Bush is President of the United States, Jacques Chirac President of France and Jacky, manager of "Kaboul Kitchen".
His restaurant is the place to be in Afghanistan: all the expats rush in to party in the heart of the Afghan Muslim capital. But an event is going to change his happy way of life: the arrival of Sophie, his daughter he hasn't seen for 20 years and who has come for humanitarian work.
But things are going to become even more complicated at Kaboul Kitchen: hostage taking, CIA pressure, betrayals, blackmail... Kaboul Kitchen. A haven of peace? You wish!
