Synopsis

Two independent filmmakers document the human cost of the conflict in Ukraine investigating the subtleties of propaganda and manipulation by government powers to influence public opinion.

The film will show the lives of people in both Ukrainian and pro separatist areas introducing viewers to the complex beliefs and opinions involved with post soviet politics in Ukraine.

This documentary seeks to explain the horror of living in a conflict zone and how the real realities of this conflict, that is happening so close to home, are rarely reported.

Beside the direct effect on the population we seek to investigate the power of propaganda in the country used by both sides.

How the people are manipulated by oligarchs and other interested parties to support systems of government that no longer function.

The influence of Russia is also covered with it's strong presence in the country dating back to the turn of the century many feel allied with Russia despite it's involvement in the escalation of the situation in their country.

This film seeks to expose the true realities of a contemporary conflict on Europe’s doorstep.
