After three years in IS captivity, Imad is reunited with his Yazidi family. Through abuse and brainwashing, hatred and strong grief have built up inside the infant. Five-year-old Imad has spent more than half of his life in IS captivity. Deeply disturbed, he returns to his Yazidi family. Imad has been brainwashed and is a child obsessed with terror as a result of the abuse he has suffered. Hateful, he meets his mother, herself a broken woman. He is explosively aggressive and considers himself an IS fighter. Will Imad succeed in coming to terms with his horrific experiences?
