Drama / Comedy

An absurd story reflecting contemporary social problems in Ukraine, told in the century-old language of cinema, linking modernity and traditional Soviet socialist realism. Classical imagery imitates an old ideology contradicting the author’s worldview revealing the roots of reality’s distortion in this post-Soviet ambience showing that cultural, political and economic problems are knotted in military conflict.

Anti-archetypical grandparents are the main characters who step by step are travelling through film clichés culminating in a grotesque unnatural finale that no longer seems absurd…
