The armed conflict of 2014-15 in Ukraine, lived and told by two children innocent souls, Oleg and Yarik that, despite the risk and the constant danger punctuated by the noise (sometimes far sometimes very close) to the bombing and the shooting of military, remain with their grandmother anchored to their home, a village on the border between Russia and Ukraine.
A film that seems where to stop at any moment - just like the lives of the two young protagonists - and instead proceeds undaunted, past the fear on the strength of some basic human values, such as friendship, the importance of a own family nest, and boundless love (the grandmother is an extraordinary woman!).
The last part of the film, the "play with guns" suggests a reflection on the consequences that affect young people themselves, who are personally experiencing long periods of anxiety, fear and insecurity.
A directed and above all a montage that manage to send the heartbeat of life of children in these appalling conditions with an authenticity and a disarming poetry.
