Children of the Enemy

Synopsis:

In 2014 Patricio Galvez’s daughter Amanda and her husband Michael Skråmo left Sweden to join ISIS in Syria. Five years later they were both killed, leaving behind seven small children. Deep in sorrow over his daughter’s death, Patricio makes a pledge to save his grandchildren. They are found trapped in the monstrous ISIS-camp al-Hol, where conditions are life-threatening. When the Swedish authorities neglect to act on behalf of the children, Patricio is forced to take it upon himself to try to get them out.
