Patricio Gálvez, a Swedish musician of Chilean origin, saw his wife and daughter Amanda become radical Islamists. Amanda married Michael Skråmo, one of Sweden's best-known ISIS terrorists, and they had seven children. Together they went to fight in Syria in 2014. Five years later, they were both killed. Their seven children ended up in the al-Hol camp. Filmmaker Gorki Glaser-Müller follows the moving odyssey of grandfather Patricio as he tries to find his grandchildren. The Swedish government pulls out all the diplomatic stops to prevent the children's return. Glaser-Müller accompanies his friend Patricio on a high-risk journey to Syria.
