After months in captivity, Farida makes a dash to the unlocked door and runs to freedom.
“I’m a human being,” she told the big fat man who bought her at auction after ISIS militants overran their village and abducted her.
“You’re property,” he sneered and turned her into a sex slave.
“Stop, or I’ll shoot!” he yells. Farida keeps on going.
She staggers and stumbles bleeding to the ground.
Farida once tried to reconcile the woman she used to be with the person she has become. It doesn’t matter now. A beautiful light surrounding her, she’s heading home.
