SYNOPSIS

War can cancel a lot. It cancels the hopes, plans, and lives of people. But according to Sasha, a teenager from Kharkiv, there is only one thing that war cannot cancel – her dream to become an actress. Following the invasion, Sasha is evacuated from her home to live and study in the city of Dublin. Fleeing from rockets, bombed-out homes and leaving her own school behind she goes to the land where the sound of air sirens can transform into the songs of Enya. Sasha meets new challenges, Colin Farrell, and even God… But during this journey she is pierced by a spear. This spear is stuck in her, it’s uncomfortable and everyone stares at her. Sasha, like many Ukrainian people right now, must achieve inner liberation to remove this spear.
