Based on Deborah El­lis’ best­seller, this an­i­mated film tells the story of 12-year-old Par­vana, grow­ing up un­der the Tal­iban in Afghanistan. When her fa­ther is un­justly ar­rested, Par­vana de­cides to cut her hair and dress as a boy in or­der to work and pro­vide for her fam­ily. With her best friend Shauzia by her side, she risks dis­cov­ery to try to learn whether her fa­ther is still alive. This is a tale of fe­male em­pow­er­ment in the face of op­pres­sion and a cel­e­bra­tion of the his­tory, cul­ture and beauty of Afghanistan.
