Twenty-three-year-old Nadia Murad’s life is a dizzying array of exhausting undertakings
—from giving testimony before the U.N. to soul-bearing media interviews and meetings with top government officials. With deep compassion and a precision that matches Nadia’s calm and steely demeanor, this film follows the strong-willed young woman, who survived the 2014 genocide of the Yazidis and escaped the hands of ISIS to become a relentless beacon of hope for her people, even when at times she longs to lay aside this monumental burden and simply have an ordinary life.
