Synopsis

One day Lukas, employed as an interpreter for an OSCE mission, becomes lost in the middle of the steppe in southern Ukraine. As fate would have it, he ends up in a sleepy little town where he finds shelter with an idiosyncratic local named Vova and his daughter Marushka. At this point Lukas doesn’t much know which direction his life should take. His next journey towards self-recognition and happiness will be flanked by a series of strange encounters and bizarre situations… As with his internationally successful documentary Ukrainian Sheriffs, Roman Bondarchuk chose a tragicomic tone for his novel debut in features, and with the help of striking visuals, he vividly portrays the colorful world of southern Ukraine, which still bears unmistakable traces of the distant and not-too-distant past.
