Logline

For 18 years, I haven't heard from my mother; she lives in Ukraine, I live in Russia, 2000 kilometres stand between us. All this time, I try to face her absence by drawing, dreaming and taking stills. Upon our reunion, I seek to heal our broken bond by drawing, dreaming and taking stills. Together, with her.
