Event Details

In 2014, ISIS dominated the city of Mosul, and committed genocide against a minority living there called the Yezidi. ISIS killed thousands of men and raped thousands of women and then offered them for sale in private markets. The film shows the journey of a Yazidi girl who tries to escape from her kidnappers and survive her life in critical moments. But she finds herself forced to disguise herself in ISIS uniform and utilize an armored vehicle bomb to achieve her goal. The film aims to shed light on the plight of the Yazidi women and try to reach out to the world to help them overcome the ordeal of their plight and to encourage the world to contribute to the search for hundreds of girls who are still kidnapped in unknown places.
