The documentary essay captures the changing emotions of ordinary people following the Belarus elections of 2020. The viewer is invited to join Mara while she watches the story unfold. Haunted by the scenes on the street she is caught between facing her reality and escaping into her dreams. This is an essay about a communal nightmare, a nightmare that has bound an entire nation together.
