In writer-director Daphne Charizani’s thoughtful drama, Kurdish immigrant Rojda (Almila Bagriacik), serving in the German army, attempts to keep her family together despite the separation caused by borders and military conflicts. After successfully negotiating her mother’s release from a camp for displaced Kurds and returning her to Germany, Rojda sets out to find her missing sister, who is somewhere in Iraq fighting in a Kurdish battalion of women soldiers. In her thinly veiled rescue mission, Rojda volunteers as an interpreter to support the women’s battalion, which leads her to dangerous and surprising encounters. Part of the Perspektive Deutsches Kino special selection at the 2020 Berlin International Film Festival. In German, Kurdish and English with English subtitles.
