Rustam Khair Khwa is an 18-year-old boy who, like many teen boys,​ dreams of being a professional athlete. His sport of choice is soccer and his dedication to 'The Beautiful Game' is matched only by his loyalty to his family. But for Rustam and his family – living as refugees in India after fleeing Kabul, Afghanistan – each day is a challenge. With his mom as the sole parent at home, and four kids to care for with little support, Rustam must figure out how to balance helping at home and pursuing his dreams.​ Dreaming In Exile makes its streaming debut on VOA+ on June 16, 2022.
