43rd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival – Official selection – Competition.

Director: Alexey Uchitel
Russia, Bulgaria, 2008

This is a story about war in the Caucasus, where one day is equal to a whole life, where kindness may be a damnation, death a solution and beauty something that can truly terrify. The struggle to survive assumes its own dimensions which govern the rules of behaviour, defying all notions of morality.
