A group of female fighters from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party set up a camp in the mountains under constant attacks from Daesh, and the Turkish and Iranian armed forces. These girls and young women left their families to protect the families of others. Together, they train in combat, venture into war zones and then come back to the heavily mined hills. They openly speak about war and the role women play in it.
