Synopsis

Twenty-four-year-old Jani lives in a small town in Western Ukraine, part of the minority Hungarian community. An only child whose father died five years ago, Jani is fed up with the boring life in his hometown, and drowning in the love of his mother, Erzsike. When he is drafted by Ukrainian Army, called up to fight the separatists, he could sneak out of the country to escape the military service just like his fellows did, but instead he chooses to go to the war 1,500 kilometres away. But why? He is not a patriot; he is not even Ukrainian. Combining visuals of cinema verité and mobile footage of war, Jani’s coming-of-age story unfolds over the nine months of his military service and the time after his discharge.
