From the creators of The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea comes this highly-anticipated, Oscar-nominated feature, based on Deborah Ellis’ bestselling novel. Parvana (Saara Chaudry) is an 11-year-old Afghan girl growing up under the Taliban in 2001, whose family is cast into dire straits when her father is imprisoned. But in Taliban-controlled Kabul, girls cannot leave the house unescorted; so the resourceful Parvana decides to disguise herself as a boy in order to feed her family. Thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner is a luminous tale about growing up amid conflict and oppression, the strength of girls, and the power of stories to sustain hope through dark times.
