Synopsis

The Kurdish war shows the need for women to organize in their own guerilla units. Muslim women with assault rifles, dedicated to defending themselves and their loved ones, tell their stories to the camera. They talk about fighting against Turkey, against Daesh, against the patriarchy and the state. And they are successful. They are fighting for a revolution that will make them equal members of society.
