Synopsis by Kyle Lavigne

Award-winning cinematographer, editor, and director Alexandria Bombach’s documentary spotlights the ethical urgency of Yazidi human rights activist Nadia Murad’s plight to raise global awareness regarding the genocide of her community by ISIS militants. As a survivor of rape and enslavement, Murad tirelessly advocates for her community by reliving the horrors she has witnessed and experienced in one public setting after another.
