PARVANA, UNE ENFANCE EN AFGHANISTAN
Parvana, a young girl who lives in Afghanistan during the Taliban years, leaves Kabul to search for her family. Disguised as a boy, she travels with other children: an infant boy, a nine-year-old girl who believes she has magical powers over land mines, and an obnoxious boy with one leg. As war breaks out, Parvana realizes that her family could be anywhere in the country, but she knows she has to find them.
