Lila (27) returns home to her family and fellow soldiers after spending months held captive as a prisoner of war. As an aerial reconnaissance expert, she was always on the lookout from the drones that she controlled from the sky. As a civil and a wife, she struggles to look forward to the future. The pain and trauma from her time in captivity continue to surface in dream like ways, as something is inside her reminding of what she’s trying to move on from. Maxim Nakonechny’s debut film is a harsh and surreal tale about a victim who simply refuses to be identified as one.
