Lawyer-turned-freedom fighter Bahar prepares to liberate her Kurdistan village and free her son taken hostage by extremists. French journalist Mathilde, herself traumatized by the recent death of her husband in Libya, arrives to cover the story of Bahar and her Kurdish army known as 'Girls of the Sun'. During her time spent embedded within the ranks of this all-female unit of former ISIS captives, Mathilde faces her own inner demons and finds strength through adversity. —Canon y mus
A story of women
Beyond the backdrop of the Kurds centuries-old fight for freedom and the even more dramatic recent history, which is gripping enough in itself, this is a film about (mostly) two women and their life struggle to exist, each in their individual way and circumstances. I think any woman would relate, but the performance delivered by Golshifteh Farahani is beyond outstanding and can't leave you unaffected.
