about the unbelievers

Northern Iraq: August of 2015. It is one year since ISIS massacred the Yazidi people in Sinjar and began sex-trafficking Yazidi women. The Unbelievers follows Sanaa, a Yazidi woman  and Orli, a conflict journalist, after their capture by ISIS. Two women are alone on opposite sides of a crisis; together they must find a way to endure.
