About the movie:
Lilia returns home to her family and fellow soldiers after spending months as a prisoner of enemy forces. As a Ukrainian aerial reconnaissance expert, she was always on the lookout through drones whose flights she controlled. Now a civilian and wife, she struggles to look forward to the future. The pain and trauma from her time in captivity continue to surface in dreamlike ways, while something inside her does not let her forget what she’s trying to move on from.
Maksym Nakonechnyi’s debut film is a harsh and surreal tale about a warrior who refuses to be a victim.
In co-production with 4film, the film achieved the status of a minority Croatian co-production and secured the support of the Croatian Audiovisual Center.
The film has been selected in the prestigious Un Certain Regard category at the 75th Cannes Film Festival, which highlights exquisite auteur cinema and the rising talents in the industry. The premiere will take place on May 25th, 2022.
