This inspiring story of female empowerment from the Irish animation studio that created Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea with a story adapted from the YA novel by Deborah Ellis, is authentic, honest, creative, and has universal appeal. Set in fundamentalist, Taliban controlled Kabul in 2001, this beautiful film follows Parvana, a young girl who must pretend to be a boy to get food for her family when her father is wrongfully arrested, as unaccompanied women are forbidden by law. She discovers freedom and danger in her new world as she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite her family.
