FILM SYNOPSIS

After two and a half years in ISIS captivity, Imad, his little brother Idan, and their mother Ghazala are released into a displaced persons’ camp in Kurdistan. Healing from the trauma is hard for all of them, but it seems Imad is having a particularly tough time. Not yet five, he has already spent over half his life enduring terror, abuse, and “training” meant to make him heartless.
