Under the Taliban's strict rule, somewhere in the dusty and bustling town of Kabul in Afghanistan, the 11-year-old girl, Parvana, helps her father sell the family's goods in the market, amidst potential customers and gun-toting fundamentalists. But when her dad is incarcerated on a convenient and unjust pretext, it's up to the spirited Parvana's resourcefulness to feed and care for the rest of her family with the use of a desperate and daring plan. Eventually, as Parvana, the youthful storyteller, takes matters into her own hands wandering all alone on the perilous streets, an unexpected friend will provide hope and a sense of freedom. But is a will of iron enough to survive in a man's world?
