    Drama

    Rokas and Inga, a couple of young Lithuanians, volunteer to drive a cargo van of humanitarian aid to Ukraine. When plans change and they find themselves left to their own, they cross the vast snowy lands of the Donbass region in search of allies and shelter, drifting into the lives of those affected by the war. They approach the frontline in spite of danger, growing all the more close to each other, as they begin to understand what it is like to be living through war.

    Press

    A work of great distinction, as contemporary as it is universal and as psychological as it is philosophical.

    Benedicte Prot, Cineuropa

    The blazing topicality of the film’s premise, the richness of its script and the story drawn out by the places we visit along the way plant numerous seeds for reflection.
