In 2014, the Yazidi farming community in Northern Iraq was taken over by ISIS forces, who murdered almost all of the men and forced the younger women into sexual slavery.

Directed by Alexandria Bombach, On Her Shoulders tells the sobering but ultimately uplifting story of Nadia Murad, a 24-year-old survivor of these twin horrors whose bravery and subsequent tireless human rights activism ultimately led to her being awarded the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize.
