What the Wind Took Away

What the wind took away

Despite having lost everything, Yazidi women Hedil and Naam are struggling for a humane life for their families. In the Yazidi massacre by the terrorist organisation “Islamic State” they were forced to leave their homeland, and have finally found protection in a refugee camp. Their situation seems hopeless, caught between the dictatorship of ISIS and their dream destination: Europe. What the Wind Took Away is a deeply poetic approach to the very personal stories of these Yazidi women and a lyrical journey through their everyday lives in the refugee camp.
