About the film
In a village in the Donbas, we are presented with the story of five teenagers facing the life choice of the next stage of their education. They dream of leaving the war zone and exploring a world not ruled by missiles.
Photographer, engineer, policeman, actor. All occupations dreamt of by teenagers from a region ravaged by war. They all want to escape – to Kyiv or Lviv, to a world where they see Elon Musk’s visionary projects instead of vehicles carrying soldiers. The film’s heroes and heroines receive an unexpected offer from a Ukrainian traveller and embark on the pilgrimage of a lifetime to the Himalayas while the Russian invasion of Ukraine is underway. This story of hope, strength, and the will to live is also a testimony to how cruelly the war is affecting the lives and plans of the young Ukrainian generation.
