In 2014, thousands of Yazidi women are kidnapped by Daech and reduced to sexual slavery. Upon her release, Ana is forced to abandon the baby she had as a result of being raped. Considered as "bastards", all children born from the rapes by the jihadists were rejected away from the Yazidi community. After four years of separation, "Ana" crosses Kurdistan, in secret, to see her daughter Marya.
