An award-winning documentary that follows anonymous activists from the Syrian city of Raqqa who risk their lives in order to expose the atrocities inflicted by ISIS. When the brutal, inconceivable reality knocks on their doors, they have two options: surrender or fight. Pursued by the murderous organization, the group flees to Turkey, and then to a safe house in Germany from which they conduct a virtual media campaign while struggling with the loss of comrades, family members, and friends. Matthew Heineman, whose Cartel Land was nominated for an Oscar, offers a courageous and candid account of people who, regardless of the temptation to surrender, choose to fight till their last breath.
