In the midst of revolution and civil war, a filmmaker sets out to find herself. From the barricades of the Maidan Square to the frontlines in Donbass, to the safety of a Parisian apartment, Alisa struggles with her love for boyfriend Stephane, her impartiality as a journalist and her duties as a proud Ukrainian. Constantly treading the line between director and subject, filmmaker and fighter, will Alisa come out of this conflict with her love and her life intact?
