What an amazing film depicting the struggle of Kurds. Brilliantly made. First class acting by the girls. I am from a South East Asian country and a Buddhist and was so moved by this film. It's a shame that they were abandoned by Trump. Without their assistance and ferocity US would not have been able to destroy the Daesh so easily. If you love Kurds then you must watch this film. Some people may not like this film. Pity on them.
