Kabul becomes a shell of its former glory. Still, Kabul retains its draw on the people that lived there. Despite the escalation of war in Afghanistan, many characters refuse to leave due to their connection to the physical country as their home. Other characters return to Afghanistan after the dangers of war have subsided. Laila feels an urge to return to Kabul and contribute to the restoration effort. Tariq also feels the need to return home, motivated in large part by Laila's desire.
