In the Donbass, a region of Eastern Ukraine, a hybrid war takes place, involving an open armed conflict alongside killings and robberies on a mass scale perpetrated by separatist gangs. In the Donbass, war is called peace, propaganda is uttered as truth and hatred is declared to be love. A journey through the Donbass unfolds as a chain of curious adventures, where the grotesque and drama are as intertwined as life and death. This is not a tale of one region, one country or one political system. It is about a world, lost in post-truth and fake identities. It is about each and every one of us.

The once charismatic, artistic and loving husband and father is on the brink of emotional breakdown following the death of his wife. He must find a way to come to terms with his grief to save his relationship with his sons. A deeply moving and visually arresting story of love, loss and family bonds.
