An essay-style narrative recounting the war through the perspectives of three generations of women. Olga, her mother (a pathologist working in a morgue, where she surprisingly feels safe during bomb attacks), and her grandmother engage in frequent video calls. Recordings of their conversations are interspersed with photos and videos from the family archive, news reports, and images portraying Ukrainian history of the last century. The result is a kaleidoscopic and personal film. Fluidly traversing through time, it draws connections between the current violence in Donbas and the destruction during WW2.
