Finding Alaa

The father of an ISIS terrorist responsible for the 2015 Paris Attacks searches for his grand-daughter, Alaa (5y) believed to be in a refugee camp in Northern Syria. Desperate to save his granddaughter, the way he was unable to save his son, the film explores themes of guilt and innocence, identity and belonging, as we meet the ‘other victims of ISIS’ – the families torn apart in its wake, trying to atone for crimes they never committed.
