Parvana was so anxious to get home, she ran right into a womancarrying a child. that turned out to be mrs. weera. so parvana escorted her to their house.
mrs. weera walks in with parvana and places the baby by ali and maryam, when nooriya is surprised and mother still lying on the couch
ms. weera told parvana to go fetch water and fill up the jug while she takes care of their mother and tries calming her down, until she got tired and felt like her whole body is sore. so when she wanted a sip of water nooriya was screaming at her.
later that night, parvana and the little kids went to bed while nooriya stayed up with mrs weera and the mother discussing about how can they get the food when they have no man in the house
the mother, mrs. weera and nooriya told parvana about their plan, which is turning parvana to a boy for her to walk the markets freely without getting caught by the taliban soldiers. parvana accepted and thet started to make her look like boy.
now parvana is ready to leave the house and get the groceries and whatever the family needs from the outside without anyone staring or being caught by the talibans.
