It's a usual Friday afternoon in Kabul. Residents are praying, drinking, shopping. At exactly 2:36pm the bomb explodes.
Merza, an Afghan parliamentarian receiving ominous threats, thinks he's the target. Alive, but shaken, he stops to aid the wounded. Alec, an American journalist who shouldn't even be in Kabul, looks for a story. With other reporters, he rushes to the scene. Elyssa, a Canadian human rights lawyer hassled by a judge, gets locked down. All afternoon, she searches for her missing boyfriend.
Taking place over twelve hours on January 28, 2011, The Finest Supermarket in Kabul is inspired by true events.
