You will see how the Kurds are fighting for their homeland and culture in this documentary. This wasn't the first war which the Kurds faced and unfortunately won't be the last one either. This war was between barbaric and ruthless ISIS and freedom equality lover Kurds. During the war ISIS abducted a lot of women and killed thousands of innocent people in the region. Our story began after people started to fleeing the city of Kobani in Rojava. Evlin was just one of the thousands of the innocent little kid who escaped the ISIS brutality. Evlin is talking about the horrific life event that took before her eyes. Evlin became my little hero in this documentary. She is brave, smart and ready to sacrifice even her life for her homeland. After watching this little hero I understand that we are taking the freedom for granted. I really appreciate Apo W. Bazîdî by bringing to our home this great documentary.

An amazing film. Please go see it!
Truly, I am awestruck by this film. It is so moving and eye-opening and inspiring. To see something as massive as war through the eyes of a rambunctious, delightful eight-year old girl is so revelatory. At its core, this film is about the fundamentally human capacity for perseverance and hope. I did not expect to feel so hopeful after watching a documentary about the resistance movement, but this story is a powerful reminder of what dedicated people can accomplish together. Particularly women! Evlin is so charming and funny and wise. And thanks to Apo for bringing a story like this to western audiences. There are million reasons to go see and support this film!

Totally worth watching!
The film is very informative and gives a great insight into the horrible events in Kobane. The life of little Evlin shows how mature the children are and how strong the Kurdish women are. Great job to the director APO Bazidi! He did a very good job. I am proud of the Kurdish people and I thank all those who contributed to the film and I wish the families, their loved ones, every power in the world. BIJÎ BERXWEDANA YPG U YPJ!
