A FILM BY ALEKSEY LAPIN
A filmmaker with Russian roots collaborates with his Austrian team to shoot a fictional film in the village of his relatives, near the Russian-Ukrainian border. In the backdrop, inexplicable events are unfolding in the village: cars stop working, electricity suddenly goes out, children slip out of the control of the adults, and even the mortality rate rises. The young cousin, Seva, has a theory about the causes of these incidents, while other villagers don’t seem to be concerned at all.
The village undergoes a transformation into a fictional narrative.
