The Takfiri terrorist group, Daesh or ISIL has been attacking and devastating towns and villages in Iraq and Syria. Daesh terrorists control some parts of Syria and Iraq and they are engaged in crimes against humanity in the areas under their control. ISIL Takfiris have terrorized and killed people of all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians. With the liberation of Shingal eventually a humanitarian corridor for the hundreds of civilians who had been stranded in the Mount Sinjar area was opened. With their evacuation terrifying stories of massacre and abduction emerged. In times of conflict perhaps children are the most venerable and the most affected. The filmmakers of this documentary have gone among the displaced children of Shingal to ask them to make a documentary film of their life. They teach the children the basics of documentary filmmaking, hand over the camera and just step back to see life through the lens of Shingal's Children. Through intimate interviews the children depict the horrific crimes that Daesh terrorists are committing. These traumatized children speak of men, women and children killed in cold blood. And they relate the cases of Izadi girls and young women taken away to be sold.
