This film is not about the revolution that changed Ukraine in the winter of 2013/2014. Rather, he shows the universal pattern of a certain kind of uprising and protest, those that end in bloodshed. At first, the noble desire for freedom clashes with the dark forces of repressive authorities. Then, after confusion and chaos, the righteous anger of the people is replaced by pure rage. After the first losses on both sides, no matter what looks black and white from the outside, in the midst of the battle, the line between good and evil begins to blur. In the end, everything is on fire.

Three months of revolution. From indignant protest to popular unity. From pots on your head to clubs and bulletproof vests. From the euphoria of victory to the mourning of the dead from the Heavenly Hundred. The revolution is like an explosion of awakened dignity, like the euphoria of freedom, like the pain of realizing the price, like the birth of the newest history of Ukraine. Just a few weeks after the end of the revolution, the organizing committee of the International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival "Docudays UA" hot on the trail of the filmmakers who filmed the Ukrainian protest asked them to provide their best footage to be shown at the opening of the festival. Episodes of future films about Euromaidan have formed a kaleidoscope of revolution that needs no comment.
