Sharing the same prison cell crammed with teachers, doctors, and mothers with babies, a Kurdish female journalist conveys the story of persecution under an authoritarian regime in present-day Turkey. It is not only Kurds, the Orphan Nation of Mesopotamia, she finds out, but all who think differently than the government are made to pay a high price with their lives either behind bars or at risk among the waves of the Mediterranean.
