As Obama announces a US strategy for tackling the Islamic State in Iraq, on the ground thousands of lives are being torn apart. This shocking report dives into the chaos, revealing a horrifying refugee crisis.

As the news about the ISIS attacks in Iraq have spread around the world, Swedish Kurd filmmaker Hogir Hirori decided to say goodbye to his pregnant wife and travel back to Kurdistan. His father has joined the Peshmerga forces desperately trying to tackle the growing threat of the Islamic State. Hogir wants to see for himself the reality of the growing crisis behind the statistics being reported at home in Europe. Along a dusty roadside, the young, the old and the helpless sit, waiting for some kind of help to arrive. Fear and despair are written on their shocked faces.
