Based on the award-winning novel of the same name by Deborah Ellis, The Breadwinner is a universal story of girl empowerment and the potential of imagination to transform one’s circumstances. It’s the story of Parvana, a young girl living in Afghanistan who must disguise herself as a boy and become the breadwinner of the family when her father is unfairly imprisoned. When faced with fear and strife, Parvana weaves a magical fable that gives her family the hope and the strength to persevere until they are all reunited once more.

“The Breadwinner reminds us how courageous and strong women are around the world.”
– Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Peace Prize Winner
