    Brief synopsis

    Français:
    Au Kurdistan, Bahar, commandante du bataillon Les Filles du Soleil, se prépare à libérer sa ville des mains des extrémistes, avec l’espoir de retrouver son fils.
    Une journaliste française, Mathilde, vient couvrir l’offensive et témoigner de l’histoire de ces guerrières d’exception.
    Depuis que leur vie a basculé, toutes se battent pour la même cause : la femme, la vie, la liberté.
