The war is rumbling and bombs are exploding in the distance. Ten-year-old Oleg lives with his grandmother in the eastern part of Ukraine, and even though most others have left the area, they have no intentions to escape. With his best friend and cousin Yarik, Oleg drifts around in the wild and picturesque nature that surrounds the village. The innocence of childhood is put to the test, however, as the war of the adults slowly makes itself felt for the boys, and a slightly older boy from a neighboring farm teaches them to use a handgun.
