Parvana est une petite fille vivant à Kaboul en Afghanistan de nos jours pendant la période des talibans, juste avant la guerre. Son père est professeur et lui a enseigné la lecture et l'écriture malgré l'interdiction faite aux femmes d'avoir une éducation et une vie juste. A cause de cela, il est arrêté par les talibans et emprisonné. Parvana décide de se couper les cheveux et de mettre les anciens vêtements de son frère, mort mystérieusement, pour se faire passer pour un garçon, travailler et nourrir sa famille : sa mère, sa grande sœur et son petit frère. De péripéties en péripéties elle n'abandonnera pas le projet d'aller libérer son père et de redevenir libre dans son pays qu'elle aime.
