When 11-year-old Parvana’s father is taken by the Taliban, she and her family find it difficult without a man in the house as women are forbidden from travelling unaccompanied. Parvana cuts her hair and passes herself off as a boy, and as the sole breadwinner she has unthinkable freedom in the war-torn city. This exceptional film depicts a girl empowered to seize her destiny from an oppressive regime, and despite its sobering subject matter, The Breadwinner is ultimately uplifting, offering hope for a world where all women’s voices will be heard.
