The Breadwinner

The Breadwinner Release Date: November 17, 2017

The Breadwinner tells the story of Parvenu, an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzia, Parvana discovers a new world of freedom–and danger. With undaunted courage, Parvana draws strength from the fantastical stories she invents, as she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite her family. Equal parts thrilling and enchanting, The Breadwinner is an inspiring and luminously animated tale about the power of stories to sustain hope and carry us through dark times.

From executive producer Angelina Jolie and the creators of the Academy Award (R)-nominated The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea.
