Synopsis: 

As the Soviet army invades Afghanistan, Aman and Mariam flee to Canada in hopes of putting an ocean between themselves and the daily horror of war.  A championship chess player in Kabul, Aman finds himself working in a pizzeria just to get by.  Their fresh start continues to prove difficult as they navigate the trauma and displacement that follows them at every turn, and when their son Roshan is born, their curse of displacement is passed on to the next generation.  The family's only hope for a peaceful future might be Mariam's past, as her family mythology becomes a source of power.  Is her love strong enough to keep Aman and Roshan from destroying themselves or each other?
A sweeping, episodic drama spanning forty years in the lives of two families, The Wanderers explores the haunting effects of an inescapable war that surpasses borders and generations.
