It is 2001. An 11-year-old girl, Parvana, faces an uncertain future after her father and their family's breadwinner, Nurullah, is arrested. He allowed her, a girl, to work next to him with her face uncovered at the market.
To support her family, Parvana cuts off her long tresses and outfits herself with boy's clothing so that she can work with her friend Shauzia who is a young boy her age.
Parvana, through her courage and imagination, and with Shauzia at her side, searches for her father and explores a side of her world and freedoms that she has never known.
