Over the past 10 years director Jawed Taiman has travelled across Afghanistan, to find out about the real state of his homeland. He spoke to teachers in Bamyan, vendors of the Urdu Bazar in Kandahar, he met the Taliban in Herat, and traveled with the provincial governor of Ghor. Having gone through 3 decades of war, in Voice of a Nation, Taiman offers an Afghan perspective of these years and how they see their future?

Born in Afghanistan Taiman left his country as a child. While working on the film Addicted in Afghanistan he became aware of a difference between the news coverage about Afghanistan and the reality he was confronted with on the ground.

Through conversations with Afghan men, women, students, farmers, government employees, and even insurgents opposing the government Taiman captures their uncensored, honest opinions and views on their lives.
