From executive producer Angelina Jolie and the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated THE SECRET OF KELLS and SONG OF THE SEA comes the highly-anticipated new feature based on Deborah Ellis’s best-selling novel. THE BREADWINNER tells the story of Parvana, an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana disguises herself as a boy in order to support her family. With dauntless perseverance, Parvana draws strength from the stories her father told her, and ultimately risks her life to discover if he is still alive. Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, this timely and inspiring tale tells of the transcendent power of stories, and their potential to unite and heal us all.
“A beautifully rendered work of animation that tells a powerful story...a glorious demonstration of the power of myth to deal with brutal reality, and the power of truth to animate myth.” —Steve Pond, The Wrap
