SYNOPSIS

A Picture to Remember follows a family from Donetsk – a thriving industrial city in the Donbass region. In 2014, the war breaks out, shatters their daily life, and forces them, like so many others, to flee. In February 2022, after they took refuge in Kiev, danger forced them into a second exile. A permanent feeling of loss has now been tormenting them for years.
