At the end of a gruelling day's work in their father's cotton field in northern Afghanistan, Houshmad Wahidi, middle of three teenage brothers, came up with a plan to steal pomegranates. Albeit with reluctance, his siblings agreed, but the theft went seriously wrong. Houshmad had to flee the province after his brothers denounced him. He swore vengeance against them and walked south to Beghlan, where he gave himself into the bondage and sexual-servitude as a dancing boy to The Uzbek – the region's warlord, gangster and principal people trafficker. Nurturing his hatred for his brothers, he applied himself diligently to his situation. Thirty years later he had become a rich and powerful man in his own right. He controlled The Uzbek's legitimate and criminal activities as the warlord's right-hand man. It was now time to settle his feud with his brothers. One had already disappeared but. Kahmi, the younger brother, had fled the Taliban to the safety of the UK. Houshmad vowed to make Kahmi's life a misery and to put his sons through the shame and ignominy of the dancing boy culture that he had suffered. He had already ensnared Kahmi's two older boys and only, Armagan remained - the apple of his parents' eyes and their hopes for a better future. On Armagan's fourteenth birthday, Houshmad's evil reached out for the boy. DRIVE FOR FREEDOM is a fiction, based on fact, and in three parts. It describes the ancient Pashtun gender reversal culture of dancing boys as it operate in Afghanistan today, its apparent anomaly with the teachings of Islam and the workings of people trafficking gangs in the UK.
