    • Synopsis
    • A documentary is about the the Sinjar (Shengal) massacre which is the latest of the bloodbaths the Ezidis have had to endure, exposing the extent of IS savagery to the rest of the world. The road trip film reveals the extend of the massacre the Ezidis had to endure through the experiences of the cab driver Gameel Cheto. The themes include the kidnappings of the girls, their being sold as sex slaves in markets and the reactions of the families, as well as the religious implications of the situation. Especially as being 'dirtied' or 'shamed', these women have a very challenging time reintegrating and adapting back into a society with a patriarchal structure.
