Kobane | AKFF

Despite being outnumbered and outgunned, a female Kurdish fighter leads her fellow fighters in the resistance to defend their city “Kobane” from the deadly threat of ISIS.

2014. At the peak of its strength, with control over half of Syria and Iraq, ISIS relentlessly pushes toward the Kurdish Syrian city of Kobanê. Zehra, a 32-year-old Kurdish woman, is a member of the forces that fight with all their might to keep them out. But despite their tireless efforts, ISIS keeps advancing with brutal force. As the war reaches the city centre, the leading commander of the city, Rojwar, takes fright and abandons his fellow fighters. Having lost many of her beloved comrades at war, Zehra is compelled to take his place and lead the resistance herself.
