Die meisten jesidischen Frauen aus den nördlichen Regionen Iraks und Syriens haben durch die Angriffe des sogenannten Islamischen Staats alles verloren. Als Vertriebene sind sie gestrandet in einem türkischen Flüchtlingslager – festsitzend zwischen dem verwüsteten Heimatland und ihrem Ziel Europa. Der Film erzählt in ausdrucksvollen Bildern die ergreifenden Geschichten dreier Jesidinnen, die mit ihren Familien im Camp leben.
