Girls of the Sun

115 minutes 2018 6.5

Somewhere in Kurdistan, not long ago, the young lawyer Bahar is visiting her family. In a bloody attack led by extremists, her husband is killed and she is taken prisoner along with her son and thousands of other women and children. A few months after she fled, she is now the commander of the "Girls of the Sun", a battalion of women. The goal: to recapture the city where she was captured and free her son who has been taken hostage.

Mathilde, an experienced war reporter, follows her and the daily life of "Girls of the Sun" during the three days the offensive lasts. Bahar tells Mathilde about the events that brought these women together, united by their search for hope and justice. From this unimaginable situation, a universal sisterhood is born: the bond between "Girls of the Sun".
