A farm trapped by apartment buildings

One woman, two husbands, four children, seven pigs and a herd of goats are surviving on the last farm in the modern district of Kiev, defending their home and way of life in the environment of the current Ukraine. Only the Jurchenko family has defended their house against the real estate companies, and is still fighting for the privatization of the land they have been living on for 70 years. They are the last ones, who could get a proper compensation, but they could be expelled any day too.

Festival Guest: Director Jiří Stejskal
