City of Ghosts follows the journey of “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently” – a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014. With astonishing, deeply personal access, this is the story of a brave group of citizen journalists who face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile; they risk their lives to stand up against one of the greatest evils of our time.
