Amir's guilt over Hassan
Sohrab coming to America
After growing up in the war torn country of Afghanistan, when Sohrab finally comes to America he is overwhelmed with the new and different lifestyle he has. Even though he misses his parents and certain aspects of his old life he knows somewhere deep down that this new life could be good for him. We chose this song because similarly in the movie Jurassic Park, the overall feeling carried by the tune is one of wonder and amazement in a new land without knowing what to expect, which directly corresponds with Sohrab's journey to America.
This song we feel like represents the relationship between Amir and Soraya because during Amir's trip over to Afghanistan he constantly thinks what would happen would happen to her if he were to die in that country. She also puts up with Sobrah and all the challenges that he brings along. She never questions Amir and is there for him when he needs to spill his heart out about all that had happened, she is his 'bridge' over his 'troubled water'.
