July, 2014. Expectant parents Irka and Tolik live in the disputed Donetsk region of Ukraine near the Russian border. Their nervous anticipation of their first child’s birth is violently disrupted as the vicinal crash of flight MH17 elevates the tension enveloping their village. As Tolik’s separatist friends expect him to join their efforts, Irka’s brother is enraged by suspicions that the couple has betrayed Ukraine. Irka refuses to be evacuated when the village is captured by armed forces, and she tries to make peace between her husband and brother by asking them to repair their bombed house.
