    • Synopsis
    • In an alternative near future, there is a town, without nationality that resembles Eastern European urban styles, where people stop fighting after several wars and virtual wars are shown as an entertainment. A War fought to keep Peace never ends.
      The fighters in the shows, looked around 16-17 year old, are born as a result of mutation and never get older than that. They could only die when they are killed. There is no future waiting for them out there. No need for a reason or an explanation in their life. And no need for love.
      They wish to die in the sky rather than living forever…
