The film project won MAD Solutions award within the Venice Final Cut workshop at the Venice International Film Festival.
The film was shot in Khanke Camp where the story is actually taking place and one of the biggest challenges during the shooting was to make the storytellers familiar with the camera and for that the filmmaker couldn’t use a proper film crew.
Despite the danger and ongoing risks of the liberated areas, the film crew followed the mother to those zones in her search for her lost son.

After fleeing their town, Shingal in Iraq, which is under siege from Isis, thousands of Yazidi Kurds find themselves without food or water at the top of Shingal mountain. Faced with no other choice, three men leave to seek sustenance for their families, unaware that an almost safe passage to Kurdistan has been recently opened. The documentary reveals the story of their wives and children who, having reached the refugee camp, remain anxiously awaiting news of their husbands, while at the same time learning to adapt to life in a new setting.
