Egor, in his late 20’s, prepares to embark on a whirlwind journey that will see him traveling halfway across the world to see his family for the first time in over 23 years, including a reunion with his estranged Father Alik that his Mother Alena did her best to take him away from. She practically kidnaps Egor from Alik all those years ago. Seated on the plane as it prepares to take off, Egor begins to reminiscence his childhood. From the day he was born in Soviet Ukraine, a big family surrounded him. Along the way, he and other family members from his mother’s side recount their struggles in fleeing the former USSR as refugees, after Chernobyl catastrophe struck in 1986. Constantly in transit, Egor’s family have found themselves at most turbulent time in history – the late 1980’s, as the family goes through refugee processes in Austria, next - in Italy, where they’re facing hardships, and on the way injustice. After almost a year of being in constant transit, Egor’s family finally arrive in Australia. There in a foreign land - ‘down under’ Egor and his family have started a new life from scratch.
