The story revolves around Parvana, who disguises herself as a boy to become the breadwinner of the family, when her father is unfairly imprisoned. ‘The Breadwinner’ also showcases culture, history and beauty of Afghanistan.

“Millions of young girls like Parvana are growing up today under oppression or conflict, and helping their families to survive in those conditions. This story is a reminder of the immense value of their contribution,” Jolie Pitt said. “I am delighted to be working with a talented team of artists who I know will do justice to the richness, creativity and strength of Afghan culture and to little girls like Parvana,” she added. The project is slated to begin production in August, and due for completion in early 2017.
