The main aim of creating this music video was urge to visualize all of the pain the war has brought into the lives of Ukrainians and how deeply it affected life and relationships on all levels. Millions of people fled abroad, families, couples got separated. The mixture of overwhelming feelings, hard choices and irreversible decisions became a part of the everyday experience of an average Ukrainian.
This animated video is a collective story of Ukrainians during wartime. As much as it's relatable to everyone as right it felt to speak up and make this aspect of life noticeable, so people can feel soothing through watching the story and process their pain and sorrow. The understanding that every separated couple and family feels the similar way and they are not alone, they could feel compassion and empathy gave me the energy to make this animation.
