A young couple is heading with a van full of first aid across Ukraine to Donbas. On their journey, they see not only the country and people damaged by war, but also war reporters mapping the situation. Directed by Sharunas Bartas from Lithuania, this bleak road movie links scenes while the protagonists indifferently drift through. The visual emptiness corresponds to the form of a parable about a military conflict and its impact both on people and the landscape.
