Dilovan, a young Kurdish woman, sets up a radiostation in the devastated town of Kobanî, Syria, during the liberation fight against IS. Dilovan’s programs in which she interviews survivors, returning refugees, fighters and poets, bring a sense of belonging to the broken lives of the listeners, who need to rebuild the city and their future. Dilovan tells her own story in a message to the child she may have one day. Shot over a period of three years the film is a bitter, intimate and poetic tale of trauma’s, healing, hope and love.
