A Yazidi refugee camp in Iraqi Kurdistan is a home for more than 20 000 refugees, many of whom have been victims of terrorist attacks by ISIS. Shilan is a young Kurdish nurse who volunteered to take care of them. Every tent in the camp has a story, and Shilan takes the responsibility to hear the refugees out, empathising with the pain they are suffering. One day Shilan hears about a tent where a woman is refusing to eat her food and have any sort of contact with the outside. She decides to take action.
