ROJEK meets incarcerated members of the Islamic State, and their wives detained in prison camps, from all over the world and sharing a common ideal: to establish a caliphate. Confronted with the fundamentalist beliefs of the jihadists, the film attempts to trace the beginning, the rise and the fall of the Islamic State (IS) through their personal stories. These conversations constitute the common thread of the documentary through which various sequences describing post-war Syrian Kurdistan intertwine.

ROJEK offers an intimate look at an unknown reality, bearing witness to pivotal moments experienced by the actors of this conflict. The film discusses how this ideological war is only the beginning of a new threat.
