Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes star Dean Andrews co-stars alongside Red Riding’s Shaun Dooley in Kandahar Break which is out in selected cinemas September 10th and available to own on DVD/Blu-Ray from September 13th.
The film, which is also available via digital download from iTunes, Love Film, Playstation and Sky VOD, is the debut feature film from British director David Whitney.
Filmed on the Pakistan border with Afghanistan and billed as “both a love story and a potent social commentary”, the movie tells the story of a team of British mine clearance engineers are working for the Taliban government in the scorching deserts of Southern Afghanistan.
One of the team, Richard Lee, falls foul of the corrupt local police chief, Ashiq Khan, who instigates a manhunt to find and kill the infidel. Alone, Richard must escape on foot across the border into nearby Pakistan, through hostile terrain, but during his journey he is ambushed by a force of rebel guerrillas, enemies of the government, who agree to help him flee the vengeful Taliban.
