This critically acclaimed documentary narrates the story of ordinary women doing extraordinary things to help and give hope to refugees after Russia’s unjustified invasion of Ukraine. Five Ukrainian women volunteers paths intertwine in a suburban station on the border between Ukraine and Hungary. United through and at this timeless train station they do everything they can to help and give hope to Ukrainian refugees. Director Tomassini’s first feature film underlines the importance of women’s role as peacemakers in the time of war. It weaves an emotional and compelling portrait of courage and solidarity in an intensely trying and testing time.
