The Breadwinner Overview

After her father was arrested by Taliban, 11-year-old Parvana posed as a boy to earn money for her family. In Taliban-controlled Kabul, women were forced to stay inside and not even allowed to walk into stores to buy food. Parvana and her family faced punishment and arrest if it was discovered the girl was earning money. The situation went from bad to worse when Mazar, the city to which Parvana’s mother and siblings had traveled for her sister’s wedding, was taken over by the Taliban as well.
