According to the film’s plot directed by Maryna Er Gorbach, a young couple who live in eastern Ukraine close to the border find themselves between two warring parties. People living in this zone are forced to leave their homes to escape.

However, Ira refuses to leave. She is expecting a baby and is afraid to go into the unknown. By choosing to live virtually under shell explosions, she hopes for a better outcome for her small family. This situation is complicated by the fact that the village where they live has been seized by invaders.

Meanwhile, a civilian plane is shot down in the sky above them. This event takes the collision to a new level.
