The film was directed by Kriystina Tinkevich. According to her idea, the protagonist is the support for her family - her sister, mother and only daughter Katia. Anna tries to give her child a better life than she had. But an unexpected and shocking tragedy occurs that can destroy everything and leave the heroine alone with an indifferent system and an infinite loss.

The film is not about wartime events, but it is still extremely relevant for today's Ukraine. "The main character faces a trauma. She goes through acceptance, experience, rethinking. And unfortunately, over the past year and a half, this is an experience that has become familiar to millions of people.
