Description

To mark the International Day of the Girl Child, the United Nations, the Mission of Canada to the European Union, and the European Week of Action for Girls present 'Girl Unbound'

Synopsis: In the Taliban controlled area of Waziristan (Pakistan), where sports for women are decried as un-Islamic, and girls rarely leave their houses, young Maria Toorpakai defies the rules by disguising herself as a boy, so she can play sports freely. As she becomes a rising star, however, her true identity is revealed, bringing constant death threats on her and her family.
