Imad, a five-year-old Yazidi child, is released from ISIS captivity after two and a half years. During this time, ISIS has brainwashed Imad and he considers himself one of the ISIS fighters. His eyes still emanate innocence, but he shows no other feelings than hatred for his mother and resentment towards those around him. On top of everything - Imad speaks only Arabic, which prevents him from communicating directly with those closest to him. Will Imad's family be able to help him overcome his trauma and become again the child he once was? Director Sanjavi followed the traumatized family for several years in its efforts to normalize their lives.
Zahavi Sanjavi was born in 1967 in Arbil, Kurdistan, Iraq. Since 1990 he lives in Sweden.
