Isis, Tomorrow. The Lost Souls of Mosul

Isis, Tomorrow. The Lost Souls of Mosul

According to a Biblical saying, the children are punished for their parents’ sins. But, is this the case with the orphans that ISIS suicide bombers left behind in Iraq? The directors traverse the devastated city of Mosul, recently liberated, and follow the ISIS orphans and their fate in the aftermath of war, as they examine whether Iraq will be able to accept them in an attempt to reconcile the population or vengeance and retaliation will prevail. Children deprived of their innocence, trained to fight and become suicide bombers, might still have hope for a better future. As long as the rule “an eye for an eye” doesn’t apply, leading to a further generation blinded by hatred.
