The long way home to Crimea

With his older brother killed in the civil war, Alim has no choice but to join his father on a road trip from Kyiv to Russian-occupied Crimea to bury his body according to Tatar tradition. On the way they face racism from the Ukrainian locals, trouble from the Russian soldiers and contempt from their own family. HOMEWARD is a tense and vulnerable drama where the relationship between father and son reflects the split within the Ukrainian population. This is a thoughtful contemplation on religion, ethnicity and belonging in an increasingly fractured Europe.
