Lawyer-turned-freedom fighter Baha (Golshifteh Farahani) prepares to liberate her Kurdistan village and free her son (Tornike Alievi) taken hostage by extremists. French journalist Mathilde (Emmanuelle Bercot, Mon Roi and guest of AF FFF2017), herself traumatised by the recent death of her husband in Libya, arrives to cover the story of Baha and her Kurdish army known as ‘Girls of the Sun’. During her time spent embedded within the ranks of this all-female unit of former ISIS captives, Mathilde faces her own inner demons and finds strength through adversity.
