  • Movie clip: This is the transition point from Amir’s poor ethical decisions to his redemption, where his behavior better reflects the influence of Baba and Hassan.Examples in slide: Contrast of Amir’s early poor ethical decisions and the better decisions he makes later in life, as well as the better decisions of Baba and Hassan that likely influenced Amir’s later moral fortitude.Discussion questions: Baba said that stealing is the only sin. Do Amir’s ethical decisions demonstrate sin? If so, are they a variation on stealing, as Baba says they must be?>Amir develops moral strength later in life. We do not see Baba as a child. Is it likely that Baba became such a strong moral influence because of consequences similar to Amir when he was young? Was he always morally strong?
