They were so very young in 1972. They came from Europe,  America and Australia; they had the feeling that their parent's culture had nothing more to offer than the Vietnam war and yet another refrigerator. So they dreamt  of Afghanistan, of Kabul. They wanted to live there as peaceful, just people. More than 100,000 youth undertook this journey.

Andi Köhl, traveller to Kabul: " Er, yes, what was that really all about?"

Donovan: "If you can still remember the 60's, you weren't there. It was one big party and everyone was stoned."

More than 20 years later the filmteam visits the lost paradise of the flower-children with the camera. We find: Soldiers, ruins, widows, roses. There is civil war in Afghanistan.

 This documentary shows a sociological insight into an unknown, but strong movement of the youth at the start of the seventies. Kabul was the first stop on these hippies route of desire. Today the once legendary  beautiful city of Kabul lies in ruins. The Kabul of the flower children lives only in their memories.
