and Song of the Sea
comes the highly-anticipated new feature based on Deborah Ellis’ bestselling novel.
Parvana is an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan. When her father is wrongfully arrested, she cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzia, she discovers a new world of freedom—and danger. With undaunted courage, Parvana draws strength from the fantastical stories she invents, as she embarks on a quest to find her father and reunite her family. — GKIDS
