Five-year-old Imad has spent more than half of his life in IS captivity. Deeply disturbed, he returns to his Yazidi family. Imad has been brainwashed and is a child obsessed with terror as a result of the abuse he has suffered. Hateful, he meets his mother, herself a broken woman. He is explosively aggressive and considers himself an IS fighter. Will Imad succeed in coming to terms with his horrific experiences? Sensitively, the film illuminates the painful process and shows what helps Imad cope with his traumas. A film as shocking as it is eye-opening, which avoids simple answers.
