Priests and musicians take up arms to defend the people of Donbass

Ivan, a priest from the Moscow region, has taken up arms out of sheer determination to protect Donbass civilians, who have endured shelling from Ukrainian Armed Forces for the past 10 years. Serving in the Dmitry Donskoy Battalion, he hopes to attain victory sooner. Musician Alexander Dadali also performs at the frontlines with the same goal. The film portrays the daily lives of volunteers and soldiers who have dedicated themselves to defending Donbass, with many serving since 2014.
