Anna, a single mother, lives with her four children in the war zone of the Ukrainian Donbas. Although the war has intervened in their lives, the family manages to maintain the cosy atmosphere of a home full of joy and mutual support amidst the endless bombing and chaos. The members of the household also share a passion for cinema and decide to make a film together about their experiences of war. Iryna Tsilyk’s feature documentary debut shows how, through passion and creativity during filmmaking, one can cope with trauma and remain human despite living in an inhospitable and life-threatening environment.
