This is the story of people who have saved more than they have lost under the pressure of their burdensome being. A married couple, Hannusya and Dmytro… When you look closer into their lifestyle – you are mesmerized by this eternal flow of life – because they are life itself. This is how it was, how it is and how it will be; despite wars, political battles, rains and blizzards.
