The Raise Your Words resource was created for 11-16 year olds. Inspired by stunningly unique animation, The Breadwinner, available on digital download September 17 and to own on DVD or Blu-ray September 24, the resource explores how to harness the power of storytelling to unite and inspire in times of change. 

Based on the bestselling novel by Deborah Ellis, The Breadwinner is an Oscar-nominated animation from the studio that bought you Song of the Sea and The Secret of Kells.

Executive produced by United Nations Special Envoy Angelina Jolie, the film tells the story of Parvana, a young girl growing up under the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001. Parvana disguises herself as a boy to earn money and support her family after her father is wrongfully arrested. It is an emotional and compelling tale of one girl's bravery, perseverance and commitment to family.
