Set in Afghanistan in 2001. Parvana’s father is captured by the Taliban. The brave young girl sets off on a quest to rescue her father, having to disguise herself as a boy to support her family. This intense animated feature shows how danger and evil can be fought with courage and love.

“There is a salving streak of humour that softens this tale’s sharper edges, reminding us that – for children – laughter and bravery walk hand in hand.” – Mark Kermode, The Guardian

“It’s a rare perfect marriage of material and medium… it is moving and magical in equal measures.” – Ian Freer, Empire.
