Rojek encounters members of the Islamic State (ISIS) as well as their wives detained in prison-camps, who shared a common dream: establishing a caliphate. Confronting the viewer with the fundamentalist beliefs of the jihadists, the film attempts to trace the beginning, the rise and fall of the Islamic State through their personal stories. These conversations are the thread along which the documentary evolves, as it is intertwined with various sequences depicting current, post-war Syrian Kurdistan.
