The inside story of three untrained British volunteers with no family connections to the Middle east who heed the call to take up arms with Kurdish fighters to reclaim Rojava from the Islamic State.

Their call on Facebook was to "defend the civilised world against barbarism," - thousands responded, including Jack from Bournemouth, Harry from Peterborough and Jim from Stoke. Filmed by three ex-soldiers, George Tyldesley, Mauricio Gris and Michael McEvoy who gained unprecedented access to these ordinary British fighters intimately explores their motivations and visceral experiences on the frontlines.
