Brief synopsis

Western Ukraine, on the eve of a traditional carnival.

Pamfir returns to his family after months of absence. Their love is so unconditional that when his only child starts a fire in the prayer house, Pamfir has no other choice but to reconnect with his troubled past to repair his son’s fault.

He will be taken on a risky path with irreversible consequences.
