The Kite Runner

How would you describe the theme of betrayal, in one full thematic sentence as it relates to the novel?

Not looking for examples of betrayal in the novel. Just not sure how to describe the theme in one full thematic sentence. Here is an example of what I'm looking for. Redemption - One must confront his or her inner demons and sacrifice self in order to find redemption.

Betrayal is essentially to be false or disloyal to others or even oneself. There can be a lot of emotional fallout and baggage that goes with betrayal. We see this most acutely in The Kite Runner in the relationship between Amir and Hassan.

Let me know if you need something more than this.
