Lost in Crimea

Lukas, an interpreter on an OSCE mission, becomes lost in southern Ukraine. After being robbed of his possessions he encounters an old man and his daughter who offer him help – but not without certain return favours. He is soon embroiled in a series of strange encounters and bizarre situations that include a money-making scheme to sell the bones of dead German soldiers from WW2. Roman Bondarchuk’s debut feature is a tragicomedy about the war-weary people of Crimea and the lengths they will go to in order to endure.
