A civil war has just ended and the heroes attempt to return to a peaceful way of life. Nonetheless, the war’s presence remains a part of their lives. Too many lives have been torn apart in the turmoil; both the victorious and the defeated have suffered alike. The story chronicles the lives and interaction of those who have been irreversibly scarred by war. In Russian language with English subtitles. (Digital presentation)
