The project was created to mark the anniversary of the tragedy that took place in Brovary near the kindergarten building on January 18, 2023, where the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Denys Monastyrskyi and his first deputy Yevhen Yenin died as a result of a helicopter crush carrying the leadership of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

The project is devoted to the study of the phenomenon of the former Minister of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Denys Monastyrskyi, his values and priorities, unusual leadership style, reformist ideas that he managed to launch before the war, as well as tough, often controversial decisions that he initiated after the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia to defend our country.

A total of about 40 interviews were recorded with Monastyrskyi's colleagues, friends, and family, through whose memories various aspects of the protagonist's life, his hobbies, doubts, life philosophy, and principles he followed are revealed.

Denys Monastyrskyi was an atypical Ukrainian official. He was fond of Buddhism and loved to hike in the mountains, restoring architectural monuments with his own hands.

Denys Monastyrskyi became a unique phenomenon in the Ukrainian system of government, and his team, some of whom died with him in a plane crash, actually embodied the idea of ethical leadership, which was unusual for the Ukrainian government.

The project was created by his friends and associates, who see their mission as stimulating public demand for politicians like Monastyrskyi.

The project was funded by friendly crowdfunding.

Rostyslav Smirnov, co-founder of the Dobrobat battalion and advisor to the former minister, comments, "I never saw Denys without a smile, he was always very easy-going, thoughtful, and never made hasty decisions. Whatever I suggested, he always said he would think about it. When I first came to his office, not knowing Denys, he took me on a tour, telling me what was around and how it was. He showed me his hobby, table football. You could talk to him for hours without noticing the time at all. It was easy and interesting. It was thanks to people like Denys, who stood shoulder to shoulder with everyone in the early days, that we managed to save the country. It was difficult. And back then there was a minimum of publicity and a maximum of work. This is what people should know about."

Director Mykola Korotkyi, "Our message is that he is a politician 2.0. Something that we are not yet ready for in our political leadership. Denys seems to be from the future, or he came into our lives to set a high standard. For Monastyrskyi, art was in the forefront of his life. He was first of all an artist in all spheres of life. His profound legal and political knowledge, as well as his desire to work for the public good, made him a politician of the future. In his video diary, he emphasizes that we need to save culture because it will be the only thing that can recreate the state even from the ashes. The project is full of poems and quotes, and the overarching plot is built around the sculpture of the Mother of God. This five-meter sculpture by Oleksii Leonov is now placed in St. Sophia of Kyiv with Denys's assistance."

Screenwriter Dmytro Ternovyi adds, "Denys Monastyrskyi is a politician of a new formation for Ukraine. He is a deep, integral, strong personality who consciously entered the public service to serve citizens and change the life of Ukrainian society for the better. Monastyrskyi perceived this position as a real sacrifice on his part because it completely destroyed his usual rhythm of life, went against the interests of his family, his own interests and hobbies. It's really an amazing story about how an honest person enters a rigid structure and does not break down in it but transforms it from the inside, 'infecting' this system with his own ideas, visions, and values."
