Synopsis

Based on the award-winning, best-selling young adult novel by Deborah Ellis, THE BREADWINNER is directed by Cartoon Saloon's Nora Twomey, co-director of The Secret of Kells alongside Tomm Moore. The film is about Parvana, a young girl living under the Taliban regime, who cuts her hair and disguises herself as a boy in order to provide for her family after her father is imprisoned. A powerful and riveting story of self-empowerment and imagination in the face of oppression, THE BREADWINNER boasts the breathtaking hand-drawn animation that has made Cartoon Saloon one of the world's most well-loved and respected animation studios.
