    • Synopsis
    • Lena was born and grew up in a small Caucasian town. She left to seek her fortune in Moscow. She has to come back because of the war in her native town where her grand parents are still living. That is not the war of two armies confront each other but a morbid and distressing war of neighbors turning against their neighbors; the war that explodes with bombs at night, thugs and whirrs helicopters over your head. On her arrival Lena finds herself trapped. The transport routes are cut off. That is natural the strange thing is that her relatives never meant to leave. Now she is to find peace amidst the war; to understand that salvation doesn't necessarily take a runaway. Having returned for a while, she stays forever. There are certain things in this life that no war can ever destroy.
