Artiom is 18 and he has only one wish: to fight for his homeland – Ukraine. He thinks he knows all about war from YouTube videos. He wears badges, camouflage and practices combat situations. He feels he's ready. He leaves his girlfriend, who’s longing for a normal life, to go to the war raging some train hours away. An observational documentary about the end of childhood.
