Odessa Film Studio

The film is about the lives of two families from Mariupol in the 1940s. One is Jewish (father is an opera artist, mother is a choreographer), the other is Orthodox.

The two families do not intersect until their children begin to meet each other. Lyonchik and Frosya, against the will of their anti-Semitic father, are not going to break off the relationship. The girl is pregnant, and a joint wedding is celebrated in two traditions. Happiness does not last long: the war begins and the Nazi come.

Why I’m Alive

Earlier, the film “Why I’m Alive” won two international festivals – Europe Film Festival and Future of Film Awards.
