Writer Statement

At first, this script was based on dramatic events that happened in Ukraine in 2013-2014, so called "Euromaidan", which I observed closely. But, seeing in subsequent years series of very similar ongoing developments all around the world - France, Belgium from 2018, Venezuela from 2014, Hong Kong and Russia from 2019, several protests in USA since 2014 that put police against common crowd - it was decided to rewrite original script and make it more broad and universal.

Although current story still heavily inspired by tragedy that occurred in Ukraine, in some parts closely following chronology of those days, it is mostly allegorical fiction, intended to show not specific political games and forces, or judge somebodies actions, but to show how unseen decisions of those in power affected fate of different common people, their relationship and fates.
