Kamila, a widowed mother, works as the housekeeper for Mustafa, a foreign poet, painter, and political activist being held under house arrest. Mustafa is guarded by the soldier Halim, who has a secret crush on Kamila. Kamila's daughter, Almitra, has stopped talking due to her father's death, and has become a troublemaker who frequently steals from local merchants. Almitra has seagulls for her only friends; she even seems able to talk to them by making birdlike noises. Halim's pompous Sergeant arrives to tell Mustafa that he is now free, but he must board a ship to his home country by day's end. The Sergeant escorts Mustafa to the ship, and Mustafa spends the time conversing with Kamila, Almitra and Halim, as well as with the townspeople, who regard him as a hero. Mustafa's conversations, ranging in topics from freedom to marriage to parenthood to eating, are animated by the movie's many directors in their own unique styles.

In October of 1981, on an island off the coast of Ireland lives Conor, a lighthouse keeper, his son Ben, his wife Bronagh, who is expecting their second child, and their sheepdog Cú. Bronagh leaves unexpectedly late one night, leaving behind her newborn daughter Saoirse. Six years later, Conor is a broken man, Saoirse has yet to utter a single word, and Ben has grown resentful of his sister, associating her with his mother’s disappearance. The family are then visited by Granny for Saoirse's birthday. That night, Ben scares Saoirse with a story of Mac Lir the giant and his mother Macha the Owl Witch, who stole his feelings and turned him to stone. Later that night, Saoirse plays a seashell horn given to Ben by their mother, and it leads her to a white sealskin coat hidden in Conor’s closet. She puts the coat on and is coaxed into the ocean by a group of seals. It is then revealed that she is a beautiful white Selkie. After swimming with the seals, she is found washed up onshore by Granny, who insists upon taking the children back home to the city for their own safety. Conor reluctantly agrees despite Ben's protests, especially that Cú cannot go with them, and throws the chest containing Saoirse's coat and its key into the sea.

Parvana est une jeune fille vivant à Kaboul en Afghanistan, contrôlé par les talibans. Son père, Nurullah, autrefois enseignant, est amputé de la jambe droite, conséquence de la Guerre d'Afghanistan, ce qui le force à devenir colporteur afin de subvenir aux besoins de sa famille. À la suite d'une altercation avec l'un de ses anciens étudiants, Idrees, à qui il refuse la main de sa fille sous prétexte qu'elle est déjà fiancée (ce qui est faux), il se fait injustement emprisonner, laissant la famille en détresse car il est le seul homme adulte encore en vie, le fils aîné Sulayman étant mort quelques années plus tôt. Parvana se retrouve donc seule avec sa mère Fattema, sa sœur aînée Soraya et son petit frère Zaki. Puisque les femmes ont l'interdiction de sortir sans leur mari, leur père ou leur frère, la famille se retrouve isolée, sans nouvelles de Nurullah. Après que sa mère soit revenue battue car elle était sortie sans être accompagnée d'un homme de sa famille pour retrouver son mari et que Parvana ait tenté, sans succès, d'acheter de la nourriture au marché, elle décide de se couper les cheveux et de se vêtir en homme. Elle se fait donc passer pour le neveu de son père et prend comme nom « Aatish » afin de pouvoir subvenir aux besoins de sa famille. Le soir, lorsqu'elle rentre, elle divertit son jeune frère en lui inventant une histoire dans laquelle un jeune garçon part affronter le roi éléphant afin de reprendre les graines qu'il a volées.
