After more than two years in captivity with Isis, Yazidi Ghazala and her two small boys are released and return to Iraqi Kurdistan. Four year old Imad is explosively aggressive and his favorite pursuits are stoning rabbits and beheading dogs. With patience and respect, Zahavi Sanjavi has closely followed Imad and his traumatized family for several years. With the help of a teacher, Imad begins to take small steps to find his way back to a normal childhood.
