In the city Kobanî in northern Syria four young women join the Kurdish militia YPJ. The enemy will attack the area and the women wish to fight to defend it.
Even though they are different, war has joined them in a united front. Dreams of families, education and freedom to choose will have to be put aside to defend Kobanî. Not only do they now risk to lose comrades. In pushing the enemy towards the edge of town they risk sacrificing their own self-image as they watch their hometown and childhood memories turn to dust around them.
Kobanî is a classic war drama about people in war and the humanity you risk losing in the fight for freedom.
