Short description of the plot without spoilers

There is a ballad written by Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko called “That Catherine's hut is on the hill...". It is about a rescue of Catherine's lover, whom she saves by posing him as her brother. This story, as a parable, flies throughout Ukraine's history and reconstructs its dramatic and heroic episodes. Every challenge, including the Chernobyl accident, leaves Catherine without her home.

But she is stubborn, as many generations of Ukrainians, in rebuilding her house out of pieces. The story is not only about Catherine's redemption, but also about Ukraine's survival throughout the centuries that is reflected in a folk tradition called Toloka.

Спочатку не пішло, а потім яяк пішло! Фільм дуже незвичний, естетичний з купою захованих відсилок до історичних та літературних постатей. Таке собі творче есе на тему історії України, яке переповідає останні 300 років через образ жінки-берегині та її хати. Через усі війни і смерті аж до війни сьогоднішньої... При цьому на душі легко після перегляду
