The author takes us on a rather unusual road movie across Ukraine, which is close to due to family connections as well as friendships. On his trips to Ukraine the director meets with many people from different sides of the ideologically and politically divided Ukrainian society. Through the eyes of the camera, we observe everyday life in a war zone, looking at the situation on both sides of the front - the seemingly calm situation in the West of the country as well as tension in the Eastern war zones. The whole crew crosses the front line to the areas controlled by the separatists at the time when both sides breached the cease-fire. Is there an end to this useless war that so often puts relatives against each other?
