In this war-worn and impoverished corner of Eastern Ukraine where addiction casts a long shadow, there sits a safe haven for children temporarily removed from their parents. "A House Made of Splinters" follows three kids awaiting their fate — will they go back or move on to a new home? — while a group of dedicated social workers create small moments of joy and respite from childhoods all but lost.
