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

The story behind rhe story
16 May 2020 | by miriam-riosSee all my reviews

Loneliness, fragility and a world filled with superficial thoughts take the best of the main characters and make them vulnerable. Performances are deep and true, the story is slow and complex interrelating how both characters became prey to a hunter. It is not a film about faith, is a film about feeling alone and wanting honesty and love.
