(2022, Portogallo, 81')

A young woman from Europe makes a choice that will upend her life: she elopes with a terrorist. Three years later, she is a pregnant widow and mother of two, and lives in a prison camp in Iraq, waiting for her trial. The film, inspired by the real stories of young women who leave home to marry jihadists, investigates their reasoning.
