Storyline

Mélanie, 16 years old, lives with her mother. She likes going to school, her friends, playing the cello, and she wants to change the world. But when she meets a boy on the Internet and falls in love with him, her world changes as she is gradually recruited by Daesh. Sonia is 17 years old, and she almost did something irrevocable to "guarantee" her family a place in paradise. These teenage girls might be called Anaïs, Manon or Leila, and one day they all might go some way down the recruitment process. But can they ever come back from it? Written by Cineuropa

Awesome performance, on point narrative on a very sensitive topic
11 May 2020 | by obiwangaxSee all my reviews

Don't know much about Islam or jihadism, but this movie really hits you and teaches tou a lot about the subject. Performances are excellent, the narrative takes you step by step on the brainwashing journey these girls go through, where they'll loose everything they've known for a promise of a life after dead that will finally cost them every piece and connection that makes them human. Movie is slow yes, but it pays off. Highly recommended if you're not in a hurry or want watch something meaningful.
