‘Children of the Enemy’ is the story of bohemian musician Patricio whose daughter married one of Europe’s most notorious ISIS terrorists. They left for Syria in 2014, and as the caliphate crumbles five years later, both are killed. Their seven small children miraculously survive and are placed in the monstrous camp al-Hol. When the Swedish authorities neglect to act on behalf of the children, Grandpa Patricio is forced to take it upon himself to try to get them out.
