A gripping contemporary thriller set partially inside the Islamic State, Escape from Raqqa is based on the true story of a French woman who voluntarily took her child to Syria and wound up a prisoner in the titular ISIS stronghold. Unbeknownst to her husband Sylvain, Faustine leaves Paris with her five-year-old son to join ISIS in Syria. But when she realizes she has been made false promises and is watched like a caged bird, she becomes disillusioned and reaches out for help. Sylvain quickly understands that the French authorities are powerless and hardly empathetic with his wife's sudden change of heart. This leads him to enlist the help of a few friends to plan a high-risk exfiltration operation to save his wife and son. —Various sources
