A soldier, paralyzed with PTSD, encounters the now-grown child of parents he killed. (Or perhaps not.) What follows? Martyrdom. Torture. Torment. Revenge. Castigation. Catharsis. Guilt. Atonement. And maybe, ultimately, redemption.

Afghan Hound is a story of a complicated, diseased relationship between 33-year old carpenter Chris Leeds, a former Marine, and 22-year old Zemar, an orphaned Afghan refugee who is tending his aunt and uncle's rug shop. Both Chris and Zemar are afflicted with a distorting trauma as a result of their involvement in the "war on terror" waged in Afghanistan. Owing to the horrors of combat, Chris is prone to masochism, Zemar to sadism; as both men wrestle with increasingly racist viewpoints of the other's community, their violent and self-abasing proclivities surface.
