Synopsis / Plot
Written by the director herself, the story begins somewhere in Kurdistan. Bahar (Farahani), the commanding officer of the Daughters of the Sun, a battalion made up entirely of Kurdish female soldiers, is on the cusp of taking back control of the city where she was captured by extremists just a few months prior. French journalist Mathilde (Bercot) is covering the first three days of the offensive. When the two women meet, all of Bahar’s experiences since the men in black burst into her life come bubbling back to the surface.
