They must now leave the defenseless Yazidi civilians to face their bitter fates. Now, the terrorists are at the gates of Sinjar. Kurdish fighters who have put up a big fight till now, killed a few of terrorists valuable lieutenants and a considerable number of their soldiers, do not even have any time left to inform the Yazidi civilians that they’ll be on their own.

Terrorists attack, and a group of defenseless citizens decides they must escape town. Taking the strike as a joke initially, the three friends quickly realize they must get serious and defend their fellow-citizens. Despite having no military background or any special pieces of training, the three friends escort a group of people, mainly women, and children, to a safe nearby mountain. Can they escort their people to safety without anyone getting hurt or abducted?
