Single mother Anna and her four children live in the front-line war zone of Donbas, Ukraine. While the outside world is made up of bombings and chaos, the family is managing to keep their home a safe haven, full of life and full of light. Every member of the family has a passion for cinema, which motivates them to shoot a film inspired by their own life during a time of war. The creative process raises the question about the kind of power the magical world of cinema can have during times of disaster. How to visualize an act of war with imagination? For Anna and the children, transforming trauma into a work of art is the ultimate way to stay human.
