Young boys of various ethnicities stand together in a crowded and dark prison cell in north east Syria where they are being held as suspected ISIS members. Orphaned, or separated from their families, during the final months of the fight to defeat ISIS, these adolescent boys were put in prison instead of IDP camps because they were alone. The Kurdish guards at the prison first insisted that these were the so called 'cubs of the caliphate', child soldiers indoctrinated by ISIS. Upon further inquiry, it appeared that they were locked up simply because they didn't know what else to do with them.
