Part of the book:
In human life, sometimes very small things turn into great sorrow and pain, very ordinary things like a photo. When Yas began her new life in Moscow, she realized that a very ordinary photo of herself had become an inner pain and suffering for her, a black-and-white photo While she was in Kabul, one day, without any occasion, she wanted to take a photo and went to a photo shop and took a picture of herself. When she saw this new photo, she liked it very much. She did not know why, but this photo, unlike the photos she had taken so far, had a kind of warmth, a certain attraction and the feeling in the photo was vague but adorable.
