The long way home to Crimea

With his older brother killed in the Russian-Ukrainian war at Donbas, 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 Crimean Tatar tradition. On the way they faced with misunderstanding from the Ukrainian locals, trouble from the soldiers at the military border and contempt from their own family. HOMEWARD is a tense and vulnerable drama where the relationship between father and son reflects the situation of the Crimean Tatars. This is a thoughtful contemplation on religion, ethnicity and belonging in a fractured Europe.
