Description

After fleeing besieged Shingal in Iraq, thousands of Yazidi Kurds found themselves trapped at the top of Shingal Mountain without food or water. Faced with no other choice, three men leave the group to seek sustenance for their families, unaware that safe passage to Kurdistan is possible. As the men search for food, water, and refuge, the film focuses on their wives and children—those who are left behind to anxiously wait in a refugee camp for their families to return.
