The film recreates the gradual transition of society from peaceful life to the state of war. Shot in March-April 2014 in Donbass, it follows the transformation of social protest into an armed revolt, supported by covert foreign invasion. The film does not focus on individual stories, instead showing the mechanisms of inflaming the war that lead to the social collapse: from the blockade of arms storages of Ukrainian army by pro-Russian saboteurs to the takeover of the town of Sloviansk by the armed groups led by the Russian military.
