I Promise, co-produced with Fatoş Yıldız, tells the story of seven Yazidi girls, who found shelter in a Turkish refugee camp, after ISIS invaded their hometown of Sinjar. The film explores the friendship that developed between them and follows their lives after they separated and each found herself living in a different country.
