One hundred kilometres from Kaboul, Salim Shaheen, the most popular and prolific actor-director-producer in Afghanistan, has come to screen some of his 110 productions and film the 111st at the same time. This journey, on which he has brought his gang of actors, all completely eccentric and out of control, is an opportunity to get to know this cinema-lover, who relentlessly produces Z movies in a country at war for over thirty years. Nothingwood tells the story of a life spent making a childhood dream come true.
