This Oscar®-nominated animation tells the moving story of an 11-year-old Afghan girl who finds strength in the love of her family and the power of storytelling.

Adapted from the novel by Deborah Ellis, this portrait of life in Afghanistan under Taliban rule is the powerful tale of Parvana, a young girl who faces adversity with creativity and courage. When her father is wrongfully imprisoned, she must disguise herself as a boy to become her family's sole breadwinner...

Beautifully animated (from the team behind Bristol favourites The Secret of Kells and Song of the Sea), this is an uplifting and inspiring film with a message of hope for a world where all women's voices will be heard.
