Shamima Begum,
Hoda Muthana

The Brit Shamima was 15 years old when she was lured from London to Syria by the IS. The American Hoda also made headlines after she put out a call on Twitter to join the terrorist organisation. After turning their backs on the IS, the two young women are now stuck in the Roj refugee camp with thousands of other women with similar stories. Here they are being cared for by Kurdish human rights activists, while the Western world turns its back on them. This documentary impressively portrays the harsh reality of these lost women, for whom a solution must be found.
