A filmmaker is shooting a fictional film with his team in the village of his forefathers near the Russian-Ukrainian border. He attempts to make a movie that is “fresh and clean-cut in terms of methods and aesthetic tricks,” however he encounters hurdles in the real world, influencing the lives of the village people, and the truth becomes mingled with lies. As a consequence, the author has to disappear from the artwork. A new fiction begins, where causality and predictability are exclusive cases. Legends are legitimized and fictional film becomes documentary. The village has transformed itself into a stage.
