War is never far away, as Wojciech Młynarski wrote. The residents of Shestovitcha, a village liberated from under the Russian occupation, are trying to move on with their lives. Nevertheless, it is difficult to live in peace when danger is lurking just behind the corner. Their houses have been destroyed, bullets can be found in the fields and cemeteries have filled with new graves. News about the aggressor’s next move is being continuously broadcast on the radio and television. A terrifyingly true portrayal of people who are trying to remain normal in abnormal times.
