Nagorno-Karabakh. People of war

The lives which were shaped from years of hostilities

For decades, Armenia and Azerbaijan have been arguing over the Nagorno-Karabakh region. In September, a conflict broke out between the countries, which claimed hundreds of lives and left more than a hundred thousand people displaced. Now there is hope the fighting will end. The film tells the stories of residents of several cities in Nagorno-Karabakh, who suffered years of hostilities. Today, as the conflict flared up again, the lives of many have been turned upside down. A philologist student from Stepanakert stopped studying and now reads fairy tales to children in a bomb shelter, while a girl from Ganja turned her blog into a military chronicle. For decades mutual hatred between the countries has divided families and friends. On both sides of the historical confrontation, there are ordinary people, many of whom grew up in international families. Today when many lost relatives, people from both countries hope the war will end soon.
