Anna and her four children live in a small town in the "red zone" of Donbass, Ukraine. To cope with a life disrupted by war, they decide to shoot films about their daily life and their real-life misadventures, as if they were in a fiction. An unexpected and meaningful point of view that makes us see love, friendship and hope in the midst of an extreme situation.
