SYNOPSIS Who fights against ISIS? Three westerners joined the kurds of the Peoples Protection Units (YPG) of Rojava, in northern Syria, to fight the self-declared Islamic State. The documentary has original footage from the Syrian battlefield, which blends in with the protagonist's daily life in USA, Italy, Sweden. The three characters talk about their choice, their nightmares and hope, the comrades and friends lost and theiR desire to continue support the Rojava struggle and democratic dream. In volunteering to fight in a war that is so distant from their daily life the question is, what are they fighting for?
