Ón Stiúrthóir Nora Twomey agus stiúideo beochana Salúin Chartún (a chruthaigh Song of the Sea agus The Secret of Kells). Insíonn An Saothraí an scéal faoi Parvana, cailín óg 11 bliain d’aois atá ag fás aníos faoin Taliban san Afganastáin in 2001. Nuair a ghabhtar a hathair in éagóir, cuireann Parvana cruth buachalla uirthi féin le tacú lena teaghlach. Le buanseasmhacht neamheaglach, agus Parvana ag baint neart as na scéalta a d’inse a hathair di, ar deireadh cuireann sí a beatha féin i gcontúirt le fáil amach an bhfuil sé go fóill beo. Scéal corraitheach agus draíochtach é, is scéal tráthúil agus spreagúil é faoi chumhacht tharchéimnitheach na scéalta, agus a gcumas le muid a aontú le chéile agus a leigheas.

From Director Nora Twomey and Irish animation studio Cartoon Saloon (creators of Song of the Sea and The Secret of Kells). The Breadwinner is an inspiring and vibrantly animated tale about the power of stories to sustain hope and carry us through dark times. Parvana is an 11-year-old girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. When her father is wrongfully arrested, Parvana cuts off her hair and dresses like a boy in order to support her family. Working alongside her friend Shauzia, Parvana 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.
