Leila Mustafa is a Kurd and Syrian. She is devoted to fighting for Raqqa, the former capital of Islamic State, which was laid to waste by the war. An engineer by training, mayor at barely 30, operating in a man's world, her mission is to rebuild her city, enable reconciliation and create a democracy. No ordinary mission.
An author crosses the border between Iraq and Syria to meet her. In the still dangerous city, she has nine days to live with Leila and discover her story.
