    The monochrome movie observes endless cycle of war and peace machinery, in which we meet a young Kurdish guy Andriy. Fleeing Syrian conflict, his family unexpectedly landed in the Ukrainian. Following him back to his homeland, we start a slow journey from Ukraine to Iraq, Syria and Germany through war zones, military parades, humanitarian missions, refugee camps, cultural, religious, wedding and funeral customs. All of these elements create eternal flow of life and death, where our protagonist exists and tries to find himself.
