The film is about veterans and soldiers. It’s built on interviews, in which they share their personal stories. It’s about making a decision to go to a frontline, being a soldier, then coming back to a regular civil life, and for some – going to the war again. With the interview’s focus on faces, eyes, words, emotions, the story reflects the process of transformation from a soldier to a veteran. It also unfolds the motivation of becoming a soldier at first and explores frontlines’ effect onto personality. The narrative is built as the story of a one man.
