Product Description

The extraordinary true story of a young Afghan girl following her heart in a man's world - a tale of love and courage, and of a remarkable woman who fights to find her own path in life.
When Samira is born her father is devastated. He needs a sone to succeed him so, ashamed and feeling he has failed as a man, he decides to bring Samira up as a boy. And Samira becomes Samir.
Yet, as she approaches adulthood, Samira becomes increasingly troubled by her false identity. And when she falls passionately in love she is faced with a heartbreaking choice: she wants to live as Bashir's wife, but to do so she must betray her family, reveal her female identity and, in doing so, give up her freedom...
