Ukraine, Austria / 2017 / 92 min
A cigarette held in bloody fingers. A woman squirming in a bed, screaming. A man is waiting. A love story. A boat on Lake Neusiedl, a hospital in Ukraine. A burning field. Another love story. Sickness and the big vanishing into oblivion. Somewhere, death is awaiting. Somewhere else life.
