The title is describing Yazidi women being held by the Islamic State as sex slaves. There are supposed to be 2.000 of them in Syria's infamous Al-Hol camp alone. This film accompanies Mahmud and other men of the Yazidi Home Center on their dangerous mission to liberate these women. But its also former Sabaya who return to the camps to identify their fellow sufferers. A breathtaking film, produced in life-threatening circumstances, which is never overly dramatic but stays just as stoic as the heroic saviours it portrays.
