A stunning animation matched by a story that dares to confront sobering real-life issues. Parvana is an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan. When her father is arrested, she cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. With undaunted courage, Parvana draws strength from stories she invents, as she seeks to find her father and reunite her family.
