Heart of Stone accompanies Ghorban for 8 years, as the young refugee grows into a teenager first and a mature young man later. Despite having survived the trauma in Afghanistan, he finds that life in France is not as easy as he had hoped. Before his life turns for the better, Ghorban must dig into his painful past. In an emotionally challenging identity quest that will reconnect Ghorban with his family in Afghanistan, the film brings onto the screen his moments of despair, his sense of emptiness and his first glimmer of hope.
