Yes. A woman is threatened by a man with a knife. She grabs the knife by the blade and her fingers are cut deeply.

The movie takes place in Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban. A lot of not fun stuff happens. There's a particularly brutal scene where Parvana's mother is beaten up by a man for being outside without her husband.

Invoked. Parvana and her friend disguise themselves as boys to avoid starvation. They are able to fool most people.

Strictly speaking, no. Parvana's older sister is betrothed to a second cousin, which generally isn't regarded as incest.

It's a bittersweet ending that leans more toward bitter. Parvana is able to free her father, but the two of them are separated from the other half of the family. The entire family has fled their hometown on the eve of the American military response to 9/11. None of them know if they will survive, but Parvana keeps her father's spirits up by telling stories.
