A fully veiled girl named AYSHA(10) is sitting in the courtyard of a house in Rojava, Syria playing with her slingshot when her little SISTER(11) joins them. The two are presented this morning by a WOMAN (38), who is also covered, in front of an exam. They should quote from the Koran. While Aysha’s sister passes the exam in an exemplary manner, Aysha struggles with it. Unlike her sister, she is rebellious and would like to break out of the role that has been assigned to her. When the woman takes more drastic measures, Aysha understands the seriousness of the situation.
