The Second Chechen War, 1999. ‘The Search’ recounts a powerful story of conflict through four lives that are brought together by a shocking twist of fate. After his parents are killed in their village, a boy flees, joining the flood of refugees. He meets Carole, a European Union delegation head and, with her help, he will return to living. Meanwhile, his elder sister searches tirelessly for him amid the civilian exodus, while a 20-year-old recent Russian Army recruit is gradually overwhelmed by the daily life of wartime. ‘The Search’ was selected for the Official Competition of the Festival de Cannes in 2014.
