Patricio Galvey is in the middle of an almost unimaginable nightmare. He has not only lost his daughter, who allowed herself to be radicalized and travelled with her white, Swedish husband to Syria, where they both got killed. His seven grandchildren, aged 1 to 8, are now stuck in a prison camp in the war-torn country. The 50-year-old Swedish-Chilean Patricio has one mission: to get them out. The result is a lonely but stubborn struggle. Not least with the authorities, the media and the politicians who refuse to touch the inflamed dilemma about Syrian fighters and their children.
