THE NETWORK is the story of Afghanistan’s first independent television network – TOLO TV – and the family behind it. Launched in 2004, TOLO TV has grown to be Afghanistan’s largest and most successful television network employing over 800 Afghans, producing news, current affairs, drama, comedy, music, and lifestyle programs. But as the country faces the impending withdrawal of foreign troops, and with security rapidly deteriorating, the film questions what does the future hold for TOLO TV and their employees, many of whom are women.
