"This is a firsthand account of how Islamic State militants took over the city of Raqqa in northern Syria, declaring it their capital."

AA: "Based on a true story". A first person testimony inspires this animation about situations and experiences that no newsreel camera has covered. Images of tyranny, oppression, unspeakable atrocities, children in a mosque, young boys brainwashed and graduated first when they commit an execution. "I miss my town. My face has changed".
