This nonfiction film captures a few days in the lives of two strikingly different people who have only one thing in common: Belarus, their country of origin.
Misha is the first one. He lives with his mother and stepfather in a village called Podorosk. Misha is a history teacher, regional historian, and the founder of a local history museum. He educates children and loves his homeland.
The other one is Edik. A travesti performer, a journalist. The founder of the first LGBT community in Belarus. He was forced to leave the country and now lives in Kyiv. Edik entertains young people and holds no particular love for his motherland.
But there is another character: the author behind the frame. The film is about reflecting on one's homeland and having the freedom to choose between leaving and staying.
