The Breadwinner is a new animated film by directed by Nora Twomey and executive produced by Mimi Polk Gitlin and Angelina Jolie. It is an adaptation of the best-selling novel by Deborah Ellis.

Here is the book synopsis:

Afghanistan: Parvana’s father is arrested and taken away by Taliban soldiers. Under Taliban law, women and girls are not allowed to leave the house on their own.

Parvana, her mother, and sisters are prisoners in their own home. With no man to go out to buy food, they face starvation.

So Parvana must pretend to be a boy to save her family. It is a dangerous plan, but their only chance. In fear, she goes out – and witnesses the horror of landmines, the brutality of the Taliban, and the desperation of a country trying to survive. But even in despair lies hope . . .

The film features the voices of Saara Chaudry, Soma Bhatia, Laara Sadiq, Ali Badshah, Shaista Latif, Kawa Ada and Ali Kazmi.

The Breadwinner is due out in 2017.
