In October 2014, filmmaker Apo Bazidi left his comfortable life in Los Angeles to work as a volunteer in the refugee camps in Turkey on the border of Syria. There, Apo met eight-year- old Evlin who escaped with her family from their Syrian village of Kobane in September 2014. Still full of hope and optimism, Evlin dreams of being a journalist and photographs her friends in the refugee camp, while brave female fighters in the Kurdish guerrilla forces continue to fight against the tyranny of ISIS. This first-hand account captures the incredible spirit and resiliency of the Kurdish people.
