 “I was born in 1963 in the city of Lviv, Ukraine, where I grew up. I moved to Moscow to study; it was still the Soviet Union in those days. My career as a director was just getting started when the USSR broke up. I became a Russian citizen simply because I happened to be living in Moscow at the time”, says celebrated Ukrainian documentarist Vitaly Mansky. A few decades later his family in Ukraine face the dramatic consequences of further turbulent change, finding themselves on opposite sides of the Ukrainian barricades. Mansky thus sets off in the wake of the Maidan revolution along a trail through the still scorched earth of his native country. His extended family becomes the vehicle for a precise and profound analysis of a region of disparate views.
