The Breadwinner

2017 Animated

After her father is arrested for having a foreign education, 11-year-old Parvana’s (Chaudry) mother becomes deeply depressed. Since women in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan are forbidden from traveling without men, it isn’t long before the family’s situation becomes dire. Out of desperation, Parvana cuts her hair and dresses in boys' clothing so that she can pass as a boy and buy groceries for the family. When no one notices the truth, she begins finding ways to make money, becoming the breadwinner in a land that forbids women from doing so.
