The Breadwinner

PG-13 / 1 h 34 min / 2017 / Drama / Canada, Ireland, Luxembourg
Language: English

Eleven-year-old Parvana lives with her family in one room of a tiny apartment building in war-torn Kabul, Afghanistan. Living under Taliban rule, Parvana grows up listening to stories told by her father while helping him in the marketplace where he reads and writes letters for people to earn a living.
One day, her father is arrested, and Parvana’s life is changed forever. In a time and place where women are not allowed to leave home without men, her family is left without someone who can earn money or even shop for food.
To help her family, Parvana decides to cut her hair and disguise herself as a boy, turning herself into the breadwinner for the family. And though she is in danger of being discovered, Parvana resolves to find a way to rescue her father.
The Breadwinner is a wonderful tale of female empowerment and imagination in the face of oppression – celebrating the culture, history and beauty of Afghanistan.
