A successful dancer from the capital relocated to a transcarpathian village, escaping from horrors of the war in Ukraine. She forced to change her common life radically. She starts working in the farmer's field in a countryside, but her artistic nature prevails over the circumstances.

"DOVKOLA" is the autobiographical dance film inspired by the healing nature of the Ukrainian Carpathians.
This is a sophisticated combination of the expressive possibilities of cinema, dance and music.

The film was created in close cooperation with families of migrant farmers from the Kherson region. Having moved to Transcarpathia affer the occupation of the Kherson region they continued their favorite business and gave jobs to local residents and immigrants.
