Description
From the people that brought us Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea, it looks like we've got another Oscar nominee on our hands.

Parvana's father is arrested. For most, this could be tragic. For Parvana, it could kill her family. She lives in Afghanistan under Taliban rule. Her mother's health is failing, and the only other "man" in the family is Parvana's baby brother. It's up to Parvana to support her family, but when the Taliban won't even let woman get water without being accompanied by a man, what hope does she have?

When she meets a childhood friend who has disguised herself as a boy to make ends meet, Parvana sees a solution to the immediate problem of supporting her family. And after experiencing the closest thing she's ever known to freedom, she decides to do something even greater for her family - she's going to save her father from the Taliban.
