Two courageous Afghan women fight to break the bonds of tribal law.

Executive Producer Angelina Jolie presents With This Breath I Fly, an intimate portrait of two courageous Afghan women fighting for their freedom after being imprisoned for “moral crimes,” exposing the complicity of the European Union in censoring their voices, and how the international press – and our documentary – forever alters their lives.
