Her father becomes imprisoned for being "an enemy of Islam." Without a father to care for them, the family -- which includes Parvana; her older sister, Soraya; their baby brother; and their mother -- is left without any means to make money or even purchase goods in the market.

Parvana discovers that a former classmate, Shauzia, is also pretending to be a boy to make a living. Can the two girls successfully avoid Taliban attention?
