Eleven-year-old Parvana lives with her family in in Kabul, Afghanistan, which is under Taliban rule. When her father is arrested without warning for being an intellectual, Parvana's mother is left alone to care for their three children.

As women are banned from going out in public without a man, Parvana must cut off her hair and disguise herself as a boy so that she can venture out in public and become the earn money for her family — all the while keeping their spirits up with a fantastical story of bravery that she invents and recounts to them.

She meets a girl named Shauzia — dressed as a boy for the same reason — who teaches Parvana how to earn money on the streets of Kabul, but how long can they avoid discovery? This is just the start of the adventure in Nora Twomey's captivating Oscar-nominated animation.

The film will be introduced by Edinburgh International Film Festival Animation Programmer Iain Gardner.
